TOP 500 REVIEWERon 20 June 2014
These are nice performances, but not quite the "Complete Orchestral Works of Liadov" as advertised.
Liadov composed 14 published orchestral works.
They time out at 90 minutes:
10 minutes longer than can be squeezed onto a single CD.

Of Liadov's 14 published orchestral works, this CD lacks:
- Intermezzo in B-flat Major, Op. 8 (1883, orchestrated 1906)
- Mazurka for Orchestra, Op.16 "Village Scene by the Inn" (1887)

[hint: for ease of navigation, read the review though to the end, then come back and click on the links.]

Luckily, both missing works are included in: Orchestral Works , another inexpensive collection (10 works).
Gunzenhauser/Slovak Philharmonic (Naxos)

If you want the "Complete Orchestral Works of Liadov", you need to buy both CDs (8 duplicate works).

C0MPLICATION: Liadov: The Enchanted Lake and Other Orchestral Works
Batiz/Mexico City Philharmonic - another incomplete collection (ASV)
includes the only recording of the unpublished "Three Fanfares" (2 minutes total duration)
- actually a work for military band.

If you want the "Absolutely Complete Orchestral Works of Liadov", you need to buy three CDs
Annoying, but all are on budget labels.

15) Three Fanfares (unpublished) - Batiz

There aren't many CD sets with Liadov's "complete" orchestral works. For anyone who might have heard the short pieces such as Kikimora or baba yaga and has wanted to find out more about the elusive composer, then this set is a good place to start especially given the very reasonable price. Having taken a punt myself, I am very happy to report that I have really enjoyed listening to the interpretations. Highly recommended.

It is not easy to get recordings of the lesser known composers. I am well satisfied with this, as it does have all the works I hoped would be there.
