Nikolai Myaskovsky (1881-1950) was certainly one of the most prolific symphonic composers of the twentieth century. He was born in Novo-Georgievsk, which was then part of the Polish territories of the Tsarist empire. He took private tuition with Gličre in Moscow, then, having decided to devote himself to composition, studied with Rimsky-Korsakov and Liadov at the St Petersburg Conservatory, while establishing what would prove to be a life-long friendship with Prokofiev.
His earliest composition was a group of piano preludes (1896-8) but it was not until 1908 that he wrote the first of his twenty-seven symphonies. Myaskovsky’s Symphony no.21, sub-titled Symphony-Fantasy in F sharp minor, dates from 1940, composed in response to a commission from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary.
Vasily Petrenko is one of the most acclaimed classical recording artists alive and has won numerous accolades for his recordings of Russian repertoire, including two Gramophone awards. With the Oslo Philharmonic, he has recorded Shostakovich and Szymanowski concertos, Romeo and Juliet by Prokofiev, as well as two major cycles of orchestral works by Alexander Scriabin and Richard Strauss respectively.
Under Mariss Jansons, the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra became a rival to the great Philharmonics of Vienna, Berlin and New York and now has a modern, permanent concert hall of its own in Oslo. This latest recording from the fabled Petrenko and Oslo Philharmonic partnership continues their successful series of recordings for Lawo Classics, critically acclaimed worldwide.
