Sergey Mikhaylovich Lyapunov belonged to the second generation of Russian nationalist composers who were professionally trained and strongly influenced by Balakirev and his associates. His Violin Concerto has “a gorgeous solo part, big tunes, high energy, emotional Russian-romantic sweep, and a simply terrific cadenza … Maxim Fedotov sounds like he is having the time of his life” MusicWeb International.

The first of Lyapunov’s two symphonies is a grand essay in the late Russian Romantic mould, a youthful yet masterful work of great charm and power.

This release is a follow up to the recent release of Lyapunov’s Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 2.

***

“If you have a soft spot for the late-Romantic violin concerto, you'll enjoy Lyapunov's...[Fedotov] produce[s] a rich sound from his instrument, and there's rarely a sense of strain in the more virtuoso writing...Yablonsky rarely allows the music to sag.”
