Lyadov, Cherepnin, Scriabin

Zany 20th Century Russian music tonight at the Conservatory. This is not a concert you would be likely to hear in the West:

Four tone poems by Anatoly Lyadov (Baba YagaThe Enchanted Lake, Kikimora, and From the Apocalypse), one by Nikolai Cherepnin (Enchanted Kingdom), and the 1st Symphony of Aleksandr Skryabin.

Brilliant playing by the Russian National Orchestra under Mikhail Pletnëv.
