Boris Nikoleyevich Liatoshynsky (1895-1968) is generally regarded as the father of contemporary Ukrainian music. Whereas his professor of composition, Reinhold Gliere, was influential upon him & others, Liatoshynsky had a greater influence upon contemporary Ukrainian composer, such as Stankovich, Silvestrov, Artyomov, & Baley. As composer, as well as professor & director of the Kiev Conservatory, Ukraine finally had its musical voice and its musical identity. Whereas Carl Nielsen was the voice of modern Danish music, Sibelius of Finland, Szymanowski of Poland, Kodaly & Bartok of Hungary, Enesco of Romania, Bax, Walton, & Vaughan-Williams of Great Britain, so was Liatoshynsky of the Ukraine.
The 2nd symphony was completed by 1936 & revised by 1940 (revision forced upon the composer by the Soviet regime). In many ways, the symphony represents a turning point in Liatoshynsky's idiom & ways of communication. Whereas the 1st symphony shows considerable influences of both Gliere & Scriabin, the 2nd symphony noticeably rid itself of such influences (although Gliere was still on the composer's mind to an extent)& what we have is Liatoshynsky in his own, identifiable language. His sense of communicative urgency & daringnes are apparent in this symphony as well in symphonies nos. 1 & 3: they somewhat disappeared in his 4th & 5th symphonies. The second symphony is an outcry of repression placed upon him & other composers during the Age of Stalin, (like Popov's 1st & Shostakovich 4th symphonies, though lesser in extent). I am willing to believe that the 1st version of Liatoshynsky's symphony no. 2 is more darker, angered, & honest in tone than the "forced" 2nd version.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a surprise! June 20 2000
Format:Audio CD
I just finished listening to Lyatoshynsky music for the first time with this CD. What a real surprise it was! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lyatoshynsky sounds like early soviet era composers in that his music is energetic, colorful, and with faery tale/folk elements. The music has a real drive and was very pleasurable listening to it. I only wish he wrote more and that I "discovered" him earlier. To my ear, if one likes the color and volume of Gliere, the energy of Scriabin, the originality of Prokofiev, then they will surely enjoy this composer as well.
