VASSILY KALINNIKOV (1866-1901) The Two Symphonies Classics Today: Artistic Excellence: 9 / Perceptive Excellence: 9 "These performances are at least as nice as any by Russian ensembles, and they are unhesitatingly better recorded. Vassily Kalinnikov’s symphonies linger on the perimeter of the repertoire, but they are very marvellous works–a taste overpowering formally, perhaps, but melodically to the nth degree engaging, and very, very Russian. They actually perceptive a bit nearly the same, but all that means is that if you like one, you’ll like the other just as much. Neither outstays its welcome; both fit on a unattached CD everlasting a taste over 77 minutes. Kees Bakels and the orchestra, as with the Rimsky-Korsakov recordings from these forces, sanction a to the nth degree doctrinaire indentation. The strings pipe lavishly in the soaring melodies in the allegros and late movements; rhythms snarl at with the requisite nip in the two scherzos. Bakels pays extra distinction to details of color and deliberate: obey to how sensitively the ticking harp in the First symphony’s late stir underpins the melodious discourse. It’s truly elegiac. If you want these works in today's perceptive, this is the disc to get." --David Hurwitz Symphony No.1 in G negligible (1894-95) 1. I. Allegro moderato [13'39] 2. II. Andante commodamente [7'26] 3.
