Taneyev - Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3

Taneyev, S:

Symphony No. 1 in E minor

His First Symphony, which can be compared to Tchaikovsky’s Second, impresses with its seriousness, skilful orchestration, and a complete absence of virtuosity for its own sake. It is all the more impressive when we consider that Taneyev was only 17 years old when he wrote it.

Symphony No. 3 in D minor

Written ten tears later, the Third Symphony is a large four-movement cycle. Its crowning glory, a scintillating Finale, shows Taneyev’s contrapuntal prowess at its best.

Novosibirsk Academic Symphony Orchestra, Thomas Sanderling

Gramophone Magazine

“Taneyev’s Symphonies 1 & 3 are need-to-know pieces for anyone interested in the Russian symphonic repertoire”

The Guardian

“These strongly characterised performances under Thomas Sanderling suggest that Taneyev’s music does have something to offer, with a personality distinct from that of his fellow countrymen… Sanderling and this highly accomplished orchestra project vividly to make an excellent budget-price introduction to the composer.”
