At last! This is really good news. Svetlanov's ill-fated project, that almost bankrupted him, deserves to be resumed and completed. As the proud owner of the complete 16cd cycle in the Russian Revelation version (made at Svetlanov's own expense), I can assure you all that no Myaskovsky aficionado can do without them. Since Olympia had to close down due to the death of its proprietor, I don't expect Alto to face the same problems...

I noted today that the Alto-label (www.musicalconcepts.net) is taking over Svetlanov's magnificent cycle, where Olympia ceased. Here's hoping Alto will not face Olympia's problems! Prices are $15 for overseas shipping per cd.

Quote: "his 27th Symphony was posthumously given an award by the Soviet Government". Dear Roger Seery: as much as I admire the symphony #27, I would not consider a Stalin Prize by the Soviet Goverment of the late forties as a recommendation. Besides, would you really include Prokovjef's #7 (fine as it is) in his best works? I sympathize with your theory, but I don't think it can stand...

(Did anyone ever notice how composers seem to compose their best works in their dying days?... Rachmaninov's "The Bells") - I don't think this is a good example. "The Bells" were written in 1913, 30 years before Rachmaninov's death.

I am looking for an miniature score of Symphony Nr. 6. Does it exist?

I would agree to a point with Roger Seery's assessment that often composers seem to produce their best works towards the end of their lives, however, it is my personal opinion that notwithstanding the obvious merits of Mysakovsky's 27th, he was already writing works of equal quality years previous to his final symphony. Indeed, as early as his 17th his ability to produce outstanding music , complex in structure and illustrating those beautiful sounds that we admirers continue to enjoy and wonder at, was well established and it may also be argued that even earlier works exhibited these same attributes.
I will agree that from his 20th Symphony through his 27th he was definitely on a roll, every symphonic work in that period being successes and for those who appreciate and love Myaskovsky's compositions for the same reasons as I do, this period of his compositions fulfill and represent the "Golden Age" of the Myaskovsky Sound.

Did anyone ever notice how composers seem to compose their best works in their dying days? Look at Prokofiev and his 7th Symphony, for example. Then there's Bartok and his Concerto for Orchestra. Another example would be Bruckner's unfinished 9th Symphony. Robert Schumann's Violin Concerto, Tchaikovsky's "Pathetique" Symphony, Rachmaninov's "The Bells", and Beethoven's "Choral Symphony" are other examples that further illustrate the point.Myaskovsky is no different. Despite being publicly criticized by the authorities in his later years, his 27th Symphony was posthumously given an award by the Soviet Government!

To Roger Seery: I gave Tamara an extra listening and tried to find confirmation of your theory. I think there surely are certain similarities to Myaskovsky's 25th, especially in the beginning and at the end when a clarinet solo turns up, but the beautiful tranquility of the 25th lacks Tamara's underlying nervosity. In my humble opinion, that is. But you are quite right in recognizing Balakirev's influence on Myaskovsky anyway.
To Kees (NL): there are 25 releases now on Warner's list http://www.svetlanov-evgeny.com/FR/collection_officielle/index.php and no Myaskovsky yet. Still I am pretty sure that the Myaskovsky's are among the "PLUS DE 100 AUTRES PARUTIONS JUSQU’А L’AUTOMNE 2010" mentioned at the bottom. The recordings are all there, they were released in a limited edition by Russian Disc (and later in the aborted Olympia project) and they represent one of Svetlanov's most important projects. The one that almost made him bankrupt. Wacht maar af.
