I wish I knew where to start with Myaskovsky. I have versions of the Cello Concerto by both Mstislav Rostropovich and Truls Mørk, although I really love the Violin Concerto too and have a Melodiya LP of it with Grigori Feigin and Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Alexander Dmitriev. However, where to start with all those symphonies? And thirteen string quartets, is it? Maybe I'm too old and should give up on the idea but I've always loved Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Glazunov and hordes of otther Russian composers of the romantic era and so I'm sure I'm missing out by not investigating Myaskovsky's symphonies. Any suggestions as to which ines to start with, folks?
