Ah, we meet again Cesar!
What, no Miaskovsky in your list of favourites?

I caught the last movement on the car radio. The performance sounded excellent to me.

Marvellous CD! Even better than Volume 1 in my view. The great discovery for me was Patrick Hadley's 'Kinder Scout' which I've played over and over again. It is under seven minutes and yet I found it deeply affecting. It reminded me a bit of Holst's 'Egdon Heath' and Sibelius's 'Swan of Tuonela'.

I see that there is a new recording of Symphony 5 (Weinberg's greatest in my view) coupled with Prokofiev's 5th Symphony.

Just pre-ordered this one as I liked the sample tracks.

I've enjoyed the new CD. I have the CPO set plus earlier recordings on ASV and Olympia. I don't have a strong preference as I've enjoyed all these recordings (maybe the ASV less than the others). For anyone wanting to investigate these works the new Naxos would be a great place to start. Actually I prefer Symphony No.1 to the better known No.2. No.1 shows the influence of Miaskovsky, who taught Kabalevsky. I hope that these forces go on to record the underrated Symphony 4, which is my favourite of the cycle.

I've been listening to this CD all day... it is a great performance.  Worth adding it to your collection.

Thanks. I think I'll get this one sooner or later. Amazingly it's on sale in the local HMV shop. The Olympia/Alto series of complete symphonies is being reissued as a boxed set (without the additional orchestral works) next week.

All this is excellent news and gives me hope that someone will record The Prison, a really important piece by this composer.

Nice! I've got the current recording of course but a new one will be very welcome.

In addition, her opera "Fete Galante" is due for release before long from Retrospect Opera. That means three of her six operas are available in professional recordings. We might be waiting a while for the other three though.
