Great Russian Symphonies 10-CD Set


$45.49 $69.98

The first attempts at a Russian Nationalist symphony were made in the late 19th century by Balakirev, Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky. Numerous composers followed, from Glazunov to Myaskovsky, instilling their music with the melodies of their homeland. In the years that followed Russian politics had an unmistakable impact on the Russian symphonists, as Rachmaninov and Stravinsky went into exile whilst composers such as Shostakovich vented their political frustrations through the medium of music. Total Time: 12 hours 4 minutes
