Synopsis

Album Description
Despite his versatility and exceptional achievements in different scientific fields, Borodin was a modest man and acknowledged himself as a dilettante in music; but it was his "hobby" that has made his name for posterity. Borodin's symphonies are among the earliest Russian compositions in this genre. They are not only of epic scale but also of epic character, which determines all elements of musical language and distinguishes Borodin's symphonies from symphonies of other Russian composers.

CD Reviews

Svetlanov was a master of Russian music
D. R. Schryer | Poquoson, VA United States | 12/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Alexander Borodin was a Russian composer who wrote relatively little music because he was a professor of chemistry and medicine by profession and composed only in his spare time. But the relatively few pieces of music he did write are consistently good and some are genuine masterpieces. His finest symphony was his 2nd symphony. Both of the symphonies presented on this CD are given outstanding performances by Evgeny Svetlanov, the finest Russian conductor of the 20th century. If you like the music of Borodin, please acquire this CD and listen to these symphonies -- especially the 2nd symphony. Highly recommended."
