All are performed by the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the outstanding Svetlanov.
“these recordings have a heartwarming vividness, an often biting immediacy, a lovely stylishness. The nationalist colouring is rich, the orientalism of the masterly symphonic poem Tamara, inspired by Lermontov, evocative...The music for King Lear...is thumping stuff.” Sunday Times, 18th March 2012
