Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Glazunov: The Complete Symphony Collection (MP3 Download)
Yes, of course I knew the name Glazunov - he wrote the "other" Seasons. But that was all I knew of him. Then Amazon sent me info about a CD set of his symphonies. Symphonies? Glazunov wrote symphonies? Be honest, how many of you would have had the same reaction? I've stopped buying CDs so I went to look for an MP3 alternative and here it was. All eight symphonies for £5.99. Well, just how risky could a purchase at that price be? All the reviews were all complimentary, so I took the chance and I am so glad that I did. The music is glorious, the conducting and playing are full of vibrancy, colour and emotion. The music is Russian, and so is the way it is played on these recordings. Anyone who loves the Tchaikovsky symphonies (especially the first three) will feel completely at home with these. I only bought them three days ago but already I've played them through completely half-a-dozen times. Wonderful, wonderful music - and I didn't even know it existed until a few days ago.
