Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Balakirev started his first symphony in 1864, a year after his first appearance as a conductor. According to Rimsky-Korsakov, by 1866 Balakirev had written down a third of the first movement, with sketches for a scherzo and a finale on Russian themes, the songs Sharlatar1a from Partarla and We sowed the millet. The sketches for the scherzo were later used in the second symphony. Balakirev resumed work on the first symphony in the 1890s, finishing it in December 1897. An arrangement for piano duet was played by the composer and Liapunov to a few invited guests, including Rimsky-Korsakov, Glazunov and the Stasovs, and was received on that occasion without enthusiasm. It has since won a warmer welcome. The symphony is scored for three flutes, two oboes, cor anglais, three clarinets, two bassoons, four horns, two trumpets, three trombones, tuba, three timpani, triangle, cymbals and bass drum, harp and strings.
