BALAKIREV: Symphony No. 2 / Russia 8.550793

The first symphony, Symphony No. 1 in C Major, also includes an orchestrated version of his piano work Islamey, plus the tone poem Tamara. It is performed by the Russian State Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Igor Golovschin.

Review By Classic CD,January 2009

There are other versions of these works, but none finer than these and certainly none offering better value.

Review By Today (U.K.),January 2009

A superb performance and recording by the Russian State Orchestra.
