    Default Sergey Taneyev

    What am I listening to right now? A string quartet that I recently discovered (thanks to Opus67 ), and I cannot stop listening to it!

    It's Taneyev's String Quartet # 1 in B flat major, Op 4 I just love it!

    Thanks for this thread, Ray! Something I'd been wanting to do, but kept forgetting all the time. I feel another thread needs to be started on the "French Beethoven," who I discovered thanks to you . (Although, for now, I've been exposed to nothing more than samples at amazon.com)

    I'd like to discover more of these composers' music.

    I heard this on the radio early morning today.
    It is beautiful.

    Sergei Taneyev deserves an ear to be leant.

    The 9 string quartets, string quintet, piano trio, quartet and quintet, are IMHO the better and most im portant chamber corpus by any Russian composer of 19TH century, and the greatest before Shostakovich.

    I like his 4th Symphony. I definitely need to hear more music by him, since he's becoming overshadowed by my obsession with Arensky. Taneyev must compete!

    Have you by any chance compared the Sanderling (Naxos) recording with the Polyanski (Chandos) recording? I'm going to buy one or the other....

    Pleased to find someone who loves Taneyev's glorious 'St. John', and hopefully more of his choral, and orchestral, output.
    Quite a bit on You Tube, & plenty to download free at classical-music-online.net.
    Recommend his 'cantata after reading the psalms'.

    The piano trio is possibly his greatest work.

    I'm a large fan of his Piano Quintet.

    Favorite works are his string quartets 1&2 (not really his firsts, but seventh and eight on chronological order).

    Great live recording of a difficult work. One of the best Russian piano trios.

    It is to Taneyev what Les Troyens is to Berlioz.

    One of the best operas from The Russian Opera School. The only recording i've heard is Tatyana Kolomizheva with Belorussian State Opera (Melodiya).
