Agree! Never thought there was any cycle recorded by Svetlanov! When my father and me were in the USSR - 1970s, 1980s - Peiko's (Николай Пейко) music was widely performed.

Just to clarify, Dave, are you saying that there actually was at some point a complete Peiko symphony cycle conducted by Svetlanov?  I wasn't aware of that either, but if I knew for sure it actually existed I would leave no stone unturned to find a copy.

I keep hoping that eventually Martin Anderson at Toccata will do something with Peiko's symphonies as he already has with the piano music, but no sign so far of that happening any time soon.

Actually, as you know his widow has licensed a lot of his music to Warner Bros and Sony... so hoping we see some of it.  I may send a note and see what happens...

I see the new Glazunov 6 CD set in Vol 2 of the Anthology series is manufactured by the Evgeny Svetlanov Foundation..

Absolutely. but you'll note the key words in my comment were "hoping" and "eventually".   Grin  Delayed gratification is a well established part of my Psyche.

I will be utterly flabbergasted and astounded should a complete Peiko cycle turn up in any form, let alone led entirely by Svetlanov. To the best of my knowledge, Svetlanov only recorded the 4th Symphony commercially (Melodiya LP), and I have never encountered any mention of his involvement in the performance of any other work by Peiko.

My understanding is that there are a total of ten extant Peiko symphonies. Numbers 4, 5, 6, and 7 were recorded and released on Melodiya LPs. Four others have circulated among collectors in live performances. The last two symphonies have never shown up. There was also an earlier recording of the 4th, prior to Svetlanov's, with Konstantin Ivanov (also on a Melodiya LP).

Should I be proved wrong and a cycle does indeed exist, I will be delighted, however!
