Description: Yet more from the widow Svetlanova, probably all the Glinka which her husband recorded as part of Melodiya's "Anthology of Russian Symphony Music (sic)". No recording details, other than "1959-1990 from Evgeni Svetlanov's archives". Some material, especially four out of the first five items listed above, is otherwise unavailable on disc. And, boy, are they good in Russia at designing multiple-disc containers which seem to disintegrate upon being touched... 3 CDs. State Academic Symphony Orchestra; Evgeny Svetlanov.
