Novosibirsk State Philharmonic Chamber Choir*, (Choirmaster: Igor Judin)
Novosibirsk Academic Symphony Orchestra,
The Temple of Apollo at Delphi’ is the best-known excerpt from Taneyev’s only opera, Oresteia, the mammoth overture to which has all the force of a Romantic symphonic poem.
• His Overture on a Russian Theme is based on the same folksong that Rimsky-Korsakov used in his own Fantasy on Russian Themes while the shorter works demonstrate in various ways Taneyev’s scrupulous craftsmanship.
• Thomas Sanderling and the Novosibirsk Academic Symphony Orchestra’s acclaimed recording of Taneyev’s Symphonies Nos. 1 and 3 is available on Naxos 8.570336.
“These strongly characterised performances under Thomas Sanderling suggest that Taneyev’s music does have something to offer, with a personality distinct from that of his fellow countrymen… Sanderling and this highly accomplished orchestra project vividly to make an excellent budget-price introduction to the composer.” The Guardian on 8.570336
