Re: Administrator's comments
Thank you! That's really weird that they included the wrong symphony but the CD must be worth having for Gauk's recording of No 17.

I have loved the music of Myaskovsky for years having first encountered it on a radio broadcast of the Cello Concerto (Rostropovich and Malcolm Sargent's famous HMV recording) in the 1970s. I rushed out to buy the HMV Concert Classics LP and went on to take the fantastic Kondrashin performance of the Sixth Symphony out of my local record library in London. It was a revelation and that dreamy nostalgic flute episode in the trio of the scherzo remains probably the greatest moment in his music for me. I love the choral close of the Sixth Symphony too (pity that Svetlanov did not use the chorus in the Olympia recording). I then bought Symphony 21 on Unicorn LP and subsequently collected all the Olympia releases until the company, very sadly, disappeared.
Amogst my favourite Myaskovsky CDs are the Kondrashin versions of nos 6 and 15, Ormandy's recording of Symphony 21 and Svetlanov's recording of No 17 on a Melodiya CD.
Apart from the music, Myaskovsky sounds like an endearing man. I liked the description of him on the back of my LP of Symphony 22:
"Small, shy, bearded and never to be seen without a briefcase". It is a pity that there is no modern biography of him but I have the Ikkonikov biography written during the composer's lifetime.

How is Myaskovsky's music regarded in Russia today? Are there many performances in concert?
I only visited Russia once in 1985 when it was the Soviet Union. I went into the Melodiya shop on Nevsky Prospect in Leningrad (as it then was) and asked if they had any records of Myaskovsky. They looked at me like I was mad and said that they didn't have any. I did manage to pick up an LP of some Myaskovsky string quartets when I was there but that was it.
I hope that the situation has improved now and that Myaskovsky, like Elgar or Vaughan Williams in Britain, is regarded as a national treasure.

Here is the link to the Gauk recording I mentioned.

I looked up the Amazon site as suggested by Jeffrey Davis and could only find an entry for the 17th Symphony, conducted by Svetlanov and this recording was listed as "presently unavailable." The probability that such a recording becomes "available" is in my opinion decidedly unlikely in the near future and I rather suspect that if the public is ever going to be able to enjoy this beautiful composition it will not be until a completely new recording is made.
I consider myself to be extremely fortunate in that I at least have a taped cassette of the 17th, quite possibly one of the extremely few existing recordings of any format in the U.S.A.
Malcolm J. Thomson.

The American Amazon site (www.Amazon.com) are now listing a CD of Myaskovsky Symphony 17 and 18 conducted by Alexander Gauk. A very welcome return to the catalogue for a classic recording.

Svetlanov's Melodiya rendering of symphony #17 appeared in the complete Russian Disc series as well, but that will be very hard to find, I/m afraid.

Re: my message below, Myaskovsky Symphony 17 was available on Melodiya CD SUCD 10-00472. It was recorded and issued in 1991 (State Symphony Orchestra, Evgeni Svetlanov). It never appeared in the Olympia series.

In answer to Mr Thomson's question: Miaskovsky Symphony 17 has been available on CD on the Melodiya label. I found a copy on the Amazon (USA) sight. It is worth looking out for.
I agree that it is one of Miaskovsk'y finest symphonies and should be much better known.
I live in the UK and am really sorry that Olympia were not able to complete their fine Miaskovsky series. I had collected all the issues. I would love to hear Svetlanov's version of No 21 (although I do have good versiions by Ivanov, Ormandy and Measham). Years ago I took an LP out of my local record library which featured Symphony 23, a folk orientated and very engaging work (I can still remember the slow movement years later). I wish it was available on CD.
At least Miaskovsky is becoming better known with DGG issuing the epic Sixth Symphony and the beautiful, valedictory No 27 available on Chandos.
I was really pleased to discover this site. Thank you.
