Mikhail Nosyrev was incarcerated in a Soviet prison camp for ten years, and this traumatic experience haunts these two intermittently fascinating symphonies. In their mixture of grotesquerie and emotional desperation, they follow the manner of Shostakovich, but also contain stylistic links to Lutoslawski and Stravinsky. Erik Levi
