Description: The first evidence in a long time that Melodiya is alive again - both these discs are new recordings. And, though the first volume only has 14 minutes of world premiere recordings, collectors of Soviet music will want to hear Khrennikov's very early (1933 and 1934-35) sets of conservative, lyrical, late Romantic piano pieces while Myaskovsky's 11-minute sonata from 1920, drenched in dark despair, is hardly a repetoire item either.
