These symphonies are apocalyptic in tone and substance, as befits the music of a composer who, like Shostakovich, defied Stalin and his censors. In another era, the impulses captured here would have found voice in opera: armies, storms, dreams and nightmare take the stage in turn. And when the Enemy appears, he is no mere human being, but a great dragon whose scales are displayed, glittering in the sun, to the admiration of the audience.

Strong Title

EMUSIC-009F3B7Br

The pieces on this CD are exquisite in terms of tonality encroaching into the realms of the atonal, tonal progressions melting through multiple modulations. The symphonies have a feel of Krenek, the orchestra is well balanced, but the recording here suffers from distortion at the highest volume levels. Other than that a great CD.
