If you're reading about this CD, you probably have some interest or experience in the Russian Romantic tradition of the late 19th Century. Even if you are new to this genre of music, this is a great place to start. As usual, the Naxos label offers an exceptional classical recording at a low cost. Almost 70 minutes of wonderful music for only $7!! The Moscow Symphony Orchestra (under Igor Golovchin) performs an excellent interpretation of these works. Alexander Glazunov's orchestral music has, in my opinion, been rather neglected and overshadowed by the popularity of his ballets. This really saddens me, considering the complexity and greatness of these lesser known pieces. Furthermore, Debussy's "La Mer" (1905) and Britten's "Sea Interludes" from Peter Grimes (1945) are so oft performed in concert halls that audiences over time have begun to regard them as the definitive portrayals of the ocean in music. In my opinion, Glazunov tops both of these with his Fantasy for Orchestra in E major, Op. 28 "The Sea" (1889) - then again I will admit I'm a bit biased toward the German and Russian Romantics : ) Fortunately the Naxos label has brought Glazunov more accessible to the public - this disc, by the way, is the 16th in Naxos' series covering Glazunov's orchestral works. I have most in the series, but this remains my favorite.
Op. 28: This symphonic fantasy is a highly descriptive, colorful, picturesque portrayal of the ocean in music. Glazunov begins the work with a "wave-like" melody in the bass section of the orchestra. This melody gains intensity then is relinquished into several beautiful motifs noted by the flute and harp glissandos.

There really is nothing I can say that hasn't been said already. Naxos is becoming the only classical label I look to. Their recordings of minor Russian works are fresh and exciting. Nothing but gems! This collection of Glazunov pieces couldn't be a better grouping. Subtle, articulate, fluid -- very rewarding listen. I just wish the mix were a little louder; the level is too reserved for such rich sound. All in all a five star disc and a perfect place for Russophiles just discovering Naxos.

Glazunov is by far one of the more unknown Russian composers. A majority of Earth's population only know Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky, Rachmaninov, and maybe Mussorgsky. Borodin, Glinka, Grechaninov, and Glazunov are nowhere near as famous. I always wonder why, because much of the music from the lower four composers are as outstanding as the upper five. Glazunov, in particular, was very prolific, creating over a hundred compositions ranging from chamber music to symphonies to piano pieces. It's unfortunate that the general public recognize him only for his Seasons and Violin Concerto. He is much more than that. Take, for instance, this CD from Naxos. As the sixteenth volume of a growing Glazunov discography, it features four works that has Glazunov demonstrating his ability to create such nationalistic music with a fair amount of exoticism. The Sea, for example, is a tribute to Wagner, and it shows. It's programmatic Wagnerian music that deals obviously with the ocean: waves, beaches, calm before the storm, etc. Oriental Rhapsody is more exotic and less Wagnerian, with an orchestration that's as colorful as works from Rimsky-Korsakov. Dedicated to Ilya Repin, this 27-minute work contains dances, fanfares, and an old man's ballad. Ballade and Cortege solennel are also have a touch of exoticism, though it borrows many elements from Western-European classical music as well.

Igor Golovchin leads the Moscow Symphony Orchestra with a very straightforward reading. I think it's perfect since there is no overblowing whatsoever. The orchestra brings out that authentic Russian sound; no flaws found here. Naxos sound quality is an absolute must-hear.

This is a wonderful find! "The Sea" makes this CD a great buy all by itself. There are just so many gems waiting to be discovered. How can we listen to them all?

This my prefered symphony. Alexander Glazunov mixes in this work, the originality of oriental modes which includes Jewish and Arabic characteristics, the power of German music, the richness of Italian music and the beauty of the Russian music
