By the summer of 1908 Myaskovsky had completed his first symphony, a form that would be his main source of expression for the rest of his life. He went on to write twenty seven symphonies as well as thirteen string quartets, nine piano sonatas, two cello sonatas, various orchestral works and choral works.
The symphonies had a long time becoming available on disc, with Olympia making the first attempt before they went out of business. The remaining Svetlanov recordings not issued by Olympia became available on the Alto label (available through Amazon www.amazon.co.uk) before Warner Classics issued the whole cycle in a box set. www.warnerclassics.com
I hope that this heralds more performances of his music and in particular the fabulous sixth symphony which is possibly his masterpiece.
