    Another weekend is upon us and another Symphony is up for your listening enjoyment. This week we welcome back Russian composer Alexander Glazunov with his Eighth Symphony. I really like Glazunov so I'm looking forward to hearing this one again. I haven't heard it in several years. I hope everyone can join in and give this one a spin.

    I'll be listening to this one on disc but here is a YouTube link for anyone without a recording:

    Love Glazunov's music but have rarely listed to Symphony 8. Didn't have to dig too deep to pull out the Chandos recording with Valeri Polyansky and the Russian State Symphony
