Balakirev Symphony 2 / in Bohemia / Etc on CD

[Symphony 2] "an attractive piece- I am inclined to think the Svetlanov account is finer (than) Rozhdestvensky... Svetlanov plays with great élan, driving the Cossack scherzo on, and drawing almost risky sweetness from the orchestra in the Andante.... The USSR orchestra has much to recommend it: their strings certainly have greater sonority and weight though the brass and wind are not always to Western tastes.. some of the material of the scherzo was actually intended for the First Symphony. Yet the ideas are very engaging... [Overture] "In some ways the most striking is the Overture... beautifully orchestrated, with a lucidity which owes much to Glinka and even outdoes him. It should be better known to us" (Gramophone)
