Description: The major 20th century Ukrainian symphonist was in the avant-garde of the period in his First: this 1917-19 symphony (three movements and 38 minutes) is influenced harmonically throughout by late Scriabin and its a wild ride throughout. From 1955, the 19-minute Grazhyna is firmly in the orbit of Socialist Realism with its Tchaikovskian-Rachmaninovian late Romantic sound. Ukrainian State Symphony Orchestra; Theodore Kuchar.
