The Orchestra Now (TŌN), conducted by Leon Botstein, focuses on the drama of Russian music. Many Russian folk melodies can be heard in Rimsky-Korsakov’s first symphony, and nationalists dubbed it the “First Russian Symphony.” Reinhold Glière’s expansive Symphony No. 3, Ilya Muromets, is based on the life of one of Russia’s mythical heroes. Glière’s embrace of traditional forms made him a favorite of Soviet authorities.
