"I am only commenting on the first three tracks of this CD, which are the Second Symphony of Rostislav Boiko. This is a highly colored, tonal work, which is Russian in its essence. Dedicated to the then Leningrad, it is to me highly evocative and intensely colored.Most amazing is the second movement - clangorous and frenzied with some of the most amazing brass I have ever heard. In the background is a Dies Irae like motive. Alas it is too short, but it is a lovely thing nonetheless. In the final movement, the Andante Cantabile, I found the calm which follows the storm. The brass is again sweeping, and not as frenzied. It paints a epic portrait of a great city and its proud people.I am the better for having heard this wonderful music."
