Description: This transcription, made by the composer so that the Secretariat of the Soviet Union of Composers could hear it and decide whether to publish it, is one of the most listenable examples of all such transcriptions. The symphony is so unusual, enigmatic, full of references and self-references, often scored with a chamber clarity, that the two pianos really do clarify its structure and form. Philippe Entremont, Laura Mikkola (pianos).
