I can say and mean it, that Miaskovsky is one of the great Symphonists of his age, and I know for sure that many a composer of his time would confirm this, especially Shostakovich which was not a small entity in his time. His word was gold. I could repeat all the words I have said over his music, but frankly that would be repeating myself over and over again. So for this you have to read my earlier reviews. All three works are top notch, the best this composer can produce, and marvelously performed and recorded. There are not many composers that give me so much pleasure, so I cherish this set as the crown jewels of England. Very much recommended.
