    I have re-recorded the Sviridov Ancient Dance (I was not happy with the first one) and I have done his Before Bed, both from the Album for the Young.

    I'm not warming to Sviridov as yet. From a pupil of Shostakovich I'd expected a bit more originality. So far his harmonic language seem decidely arid, but I'll keep my ears open for more. Incidentally, last year I posted a little set by another Shostakovich pupil, Orest Yevlakhov, which I rather like (despite not exactly being great music). It generated little interest.

    The Dance is better than previous but I still think it is too dogged and unsmiling, mode plodding than dancing.
    The other piece is quite nicely played if a bit too static and stilted for my taste. Based on the title I guess this is perhaps meant as a berceuse or lullaby, and as such should flow a little more. Dynamics are better here but you could do more yet, also in the phrasing, to make it more attractive. Repertoire like this needs a lot of conviction and TLC. And maybe longer preparation, to let them get under your skin, even though technically you can well record these on the very first encounter.
