There are scintillating sounds aplenty in our new release of orchestral works by Dmitry Kabalevsky (1904-1987). Raymond Bisha introduces a programme of two overtures and a pair of symphonies by the Russian composer who endeavoured to position himself as both a progressive and a conservative during his country’s difficult Soviet era. The performances are by familiar Naxos artists: the Malmö Symphony Orchestra and conductor Darrell Ang already have some 40 highly successful recordings for the label in the catalogue.
