All three of these discs merits attention. The Rodney Newton symphonies, particularly the 1st, are heavily influenced by the music of Vaughan Williams without quite attaining the same heights of inspiration. The Hackbridge Johnson symphony is, I think, over-extended and discursive but is a powerful piece. It was actually the short orchestral Motet which gripped me the most. Paul Mann likens it to the Samuel Barber Essays for orchestra and the immense power conveyed in a short orchestral work is certainly valid. The Elcock I need to listen to again; it is the least immediate of the three.

I note that all 3 discs are labelled Volume One so it appears that Martin Anderson has the funding to record more! There are always the Derek Bourgeois symphonies

Ah! Okay!
I have been collecting Myaskovsky recordings for many years. The only complete cycle of the symphonies is by Svetlanov. It is good to have his set, because it includes the *only* recordings of Symphonies 3, 4, 13, 14, 18 and 20. However, in many cases, if there are other recordings, Svetlanov leaves much to be desired. For example, his recordings of 5 and 6 are very bad. We are lucky to have other recordings, especially of these two great works.

In addition to the conductors you mention, many other conductors have recorded one or more Myaskovsky symphonies --
Rozhdestvensky
Rabl
Downes
Manolov
Kondrashin
Liss
Ginzberg
Halasz
Stankovsky
Gauk
Mikailov
Sergeyev
Gould
Ormandy
Kovalev

Nikoleyev also conducted a recording of Symphony 21, but others are better.

As for Myaskovsky's other orchestral works, there are many recordings of the violin concerto and cello concerto, of course, but also his many other orchestral works. Svetlanov made the only recording of some of these, but others have been recorded by multiple conductors.

More wagnerian than Wagner himself:

Svetlanov recording are considered Landmark for this composer.Sadly sound quality is sometimes poor and the sound lack of depth (this is a limit also of recent Melodiya Anthology),IMHO this is a more recent reconding and benefit of modern restore,also orchestra seems react to this conductor with some passion.Sadly webpage of this label is offline,so i can't say if it was an integral alternative version of Myaskovsky symphonies.

P.S.
I listened also Dudarova , Ivanov and Yablonsky :IMHO are less convicing

Huh? Dudarova , Ivanov and Yablonsky conduct the 26th? Where? When? What label? If broadcast, please upload.

The 26th conducted by Nikolayev is easy to find. All these others, I never heard of. Only Svetlanov and Nikolayev 26th.





Dear Amphissa.Clearly i was speaking of all Myaskovsky's cycle.IMHO one of the reason of his scarce diffusion outside Russia is scarce sound quality of recordings.
Truly before this i didn't know Nikolaev as conductor

Hmm. A long time to wait and not a cd which interests me, I am afraid. I was hoping for another instalment in the Daniel Jones series or some Iain Hamilton or Alun Hoddinott symphonies or the Grace Williams Missa.

My thoughts exactly, Colin!

While doing a bit of online research on an unrelated topic I stumbled upon the information that the London Phil under Jurowski performed this work on Sept 27, 2017.  While there's been a performance of this work (conducted, I believe, by Maderna) kicking around on the internet for some time, a fresh take would be most welcome to we Silvestrovophiles.  I don't suppose anybody knows if this performance was broadcast and if so, whether or not anybody managed to snag a recording?  I know it's a bit of a long shot but hope springs eternal...

Thomas Schmidt-Kowalski (1949-2013) -- One critic wrote: "manages to bypass 20th-century modernism by doing a 'Sturm und Drang' of his own in 21st-century terms, making himself a 'must' for today's German concert, disc, and radio audiences." I'm not sure he's a "must," but that might be overly effusive.

Four symphonies, one concerto for violin and one for cello, assorted orchestral and chamber works. Completely tonal, romantic style. Easy on the ears, but IMO not magical.

Here is the Cello Concerto
