Balakirev: Symphony No. 2 in D minor
Mily Balakirev began work on his Symphony No. 2 in D minor in 1900, but did not complete the work until 1908. The premiere of the symphony was conducted by Russian composer Sergei Liapunov, a student of Balakirev, in St. Petersburg in 1909. Another performance was held in Paris soon afterward, but the piece has since become one of the lesser-known symphonies in the repertoire.
