Product Description & Reviews

Sir Edward Downes enjoyed a long association with the BBC Philharmonic, serving as its Chief Guest Conductor, then Principal Conductor, and finally as Conductor Emeritus. His recording of Gliere's Symphony No. 3 ""Ilya Muromets"" proved the beginning of an enduring relationship between Chandos and the orchestra, which has made around 200 highly acclaimed recordings for the company, all noted for their sonic - as well as artistic - brilliance. Although he died in 1956, Gliere wrote in the great Russian romantic tradition, specializing in large-scale forms and combining tunefulness with unashamedly colorful orchestrations. This Chandos release, which includes many rarities in the concert and record repertoires, is the most comprehensive survey of this composer's music available; it comprises Gliere's three symphonies and a host of tone poems, ballet suites, and other orchestral works. Among the most famous will be the epic Third Symphony ""Ilya Muromets"" and the Suite from the ballet, The Red Poppy, which includes the famous ""Russian Sailor's Dance"", one of the catchiest classical pops in the whole repertoire. The ballet music of Gliere was particularly effective, demonstrating great sensitivity and beauty, the composer's aptitude for ear-ticking sonorities most apparent. The forty-six-minute suite from The Brnze Horseman is an excellent example, here coupled with the appealing Horn Concerto. An album of miscellaneous overtures and orcehstral works continues to illustrate Gliere's tuneful art, much of it imbued with ""local"" color and dressed in bright orchestral garb. All is presented with relish by the BBC Philharmonic. The late Sir Edward Downes and Vassily Sinaisky are both masters of this colorful repertoire, and the sonic quality of Chandos' BBC Philharmonic recordings is legendary.
