Sergei Taneyev composed music at the height of Russian Romanticism; i.e. in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Straddling both the international school led by his friend Tchaikovsky, and the nationalist school of the Mighty Five, Taneyev is not as famous as many of his Russian contemparories. Part of this was his was probably his small catalogue of works, which includes 4 completed symphonies. This Naxos release features two of his symphonies. The sound quality is good, as is the music itself. However, the music lacks the sheer orchestral brilliance of contemparory works by the likes of Rimsky-Korsakov or Tchaikovsky, or the lyrical beauty of symphonies by Glazunov or Borodin. And neither of the works on either album features that catchy tune that can stick in your head like say the finales from Beethoven's or Dvorak's 9th symphonies. Overall, ok works by a respectable, but not a great composer of classical music.
