Lyapunov: Violin Concerto, Symphony No 1 / Maxim Fedotov, Dmitry Yablonsky
Sergey Mikhaylovich Lyapunov belonged to the second generation of Russian nationalist composers who were professionally trained and strongly influenced by Balakirev and his associates. His Violin Concerto has ‘a gorgeous solo part, big tunes, high energy, emotional Russian-romantic sweep, and a simply terrific cadenza…Maxim Fedotov sounds like he is having the time of his life’ (MusicWeb International). The first of Lyapunov’s two symphonies is a grand essay in the late Russian Romantic mould, a youthful yet masterful work of great charm and power.
