My discovery of the year is that you can gain much more understanding of music if you try to compose yourself.

You can download a free program called MuseScore (Mac or Windows), and it allows you to lay out a score and input notes &c, you can listen to what you have written in midi sound (not great, but entertaining), export your work as a Pdf score, or an mp3 of the midi sound.

I started with this program in early 2017 and started off by composing a String Trio (mainly to teach myself how to use the program) and since October have been working on a symphony!

The point is that even though one's own work may be of no worth, it really makes you listen in a different way to music because you have been there and done that. I find it makes me further in awe of the great composers (thinking: how they possibly sustain this level of inspiration?), but even less sympathetic to composers I don't like, because now their music sounds clunkier, more disjointed and even less inspired than before.

Give it a go!

Wow! I had never heard of the composer or the musicians. Really quite interesting. You mention a commercial recording. I don't find it on Amazon US or Ebay. Is it available? Variant spellings?

The only other recording I'm familiar with is Svetlanov's. Do you know of any other recordings?

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.
