Legendary Russian-born conductor Malko, and the music of nine European composers 2 CDs

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Nicolai Malko (1883-1961) studied at St Petersburg under : Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov ; Alex Glazunov ; Anatoly Liadov ; and, finally Alex Tcherepnin ; before beginning his professional conductorship in the city, in pre-revolution 1908.

After WWI, he became a professor in Moscow, then in the re-named Leningrad, before coming to wider notice, when he premiered Dmitri Shostakovich's First Symphony, in 1926.

He left his home-nation two years later, appearing in Prague, Vienna, London and Copenhagen (-he especially was an admirer of Scandinavian music during his career, conducting and recording works by Carl Nielsen, Johan Svendsen and Harald Saeverud, among others, although strangely none of Nielsen's, nor Sibelius' symphonies! -), before he lived and taught in the US for almost sixteen years.

From 1956, until his death in 1961, he lived in Sydney, where he succeeded Sir Eugene Goossens, as the city's principal conductor.
