Description: Only Kalinnikov's symphonies and his Serenade are available on disc. Svetlanov has the rest of the Kalinnikov œuvre to himself in this latest edition. While I have been able to identify recording dates for all of the Kalinnikov and the Scriabin First Symphony and piano concerto, I cannot tell you anything about the other four symphonies as the extremely limited documentation of these releases becomes even more limited... 6 CDs. USSR Symphony Orchestra; Evgeni Svetlanov.
