(Angel-33313, one 13" LP record) Two of th large scale Haydn symphonies receive performances from the Orchestra la Radiodiffusion Francaise under Igor Markenvitch that emphasise brilliance of execution at tbe expense of inner su bitty and refinement.

The Bee-thovenish energy of the flat maj- or Symphony is mors challenging to Markeviub, but again the slow movement (which anticipates the slow movement of Beethoven's "Pastorale" Symphony) lacks repose and grace.

Sergei Tanieff (1830-1813) has been a Russian composer mors honored in textbooks than in concert and on record. Hearing the "Concert Suite for Violin and one can see why his music has been neglected. Tanieff was one of the most non-crltical composers imaginable about his own music if onl must judge from this "concert Suite" Msdiocr melodies are ffset by passages of imaginative poetry; hum-drum passage work is balanced by sections of real creative genius.
