CD Reviews

Arensky of the Russian School...
Sébastien Melmoth | Hôtel d'Alsace, PARIS | 02/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

".
Arensky--pupil of R.-Korsakov and Tchaikowsky in Petrograd; teacher of Scriabin, Rachmaninov, and Gliére in Mosko--was a significant member of the Russian School.

Like Mussorgsky and Glazunov, Arensky had an unfortunate penchant for vodka--which probably undermined his health and led to the obscurity of his music. Nevertheless, he was a talented voice.

His Symphony No. 2 is very amusing with interesting orchestration and prescient, forward-looking accents which suggest Gershwin's use of the trumpet for klaxon in An American in Paris.
