Format: Audio CD
This is a marvellous set of the Glazunov symphonies - the best on the market at the moment the performances of 2 & 4 (my own favourites), are superb. Svetlanov's performances are the best I have heard and it's a pity the torso of the 9th Symphony was not included rather than the somewhat faceless fillers which are pleasant enough. Unfortunately it's ruined by the abominable, cheap-jack presentation. The box is far too big for the discs and there are no notes whatsoever. As the music is not well known and rarely (ever?) played in concert nowadays, background notes are essential. All we get is an article on the conductor by his widow, an article on the Evgeny Svetlanov International 'Conductings' (I kid you not) Competition 2010 and two pages advertising the other discs in the edition. What is worse is that the sleeve for the 2nd Symphony tells us it is called 'Resurrection' and is in C minor - the key of MAHLER'S Symphony no. 2 (the booklet gets it right) and one wonders if anyone involved bothered to listen to the music or indeed quality-check the issue before it was put on the market. Unfortunately the impression I get is that Warner Classics had by this time lost interest in the edition and only issued the set because they had to. I expect better from an international, major recording company. Glazunov's music is of high quality and is important in its own right. It is an important link between the music of Tchaikovsky (I think Glazunov is a far superior composer) and that of the early Soviet composers (let's not forget he was Shostakovich's teacher) and it deserves better. As the musical quality of the set is so high I have given the issue 5 stars - presentation NIL.

HASH(0xa16a9720) out of 5 stars Rough and ready Glazunov 12 April 2011
By J. K. Davis MD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Glazunov's symphonies, especially in the slow movements, can easily assume the qualities of old film music or even"classical elevator music". These recordings however bring the music to life, as long as you can tolerate occasionally wobbly brass and less than precise orchestral ensemble playing. Rozhdestvensky, also with a Russian orchestra, is better in those regards but a bit less exciting in the 'stormy' passages. Either that set or the Svetlanov are preferable to Jarvi, Serebrier or otaka despite their more up to date sonics. Bakels and the Malaysian
orchestra could really put these symphonies on the map (listen to their Rimsky-Korsakov recordings).
