"Wow. Very nice work! I enjoyed the almost romantic-sounding opening, and the gradual buildup to the intense section, which reminds me of Shostakovich in its minimalistic yet intense sound. Молодец!"

"Listening to you symphony! Great, love it! Do you have something for violin solo, violin with piano, or chamber music with violin? Would love to see some score! All the best from Vienna, Alex"

"Pavel, I listened to the scherzo. It reminded me of Shostakovich in its frenetic energy. Yes, this was the light-hearted dessert I craved after hearing your symphony. As for influences (on your symphony), someone pointed-out Mahler. Parts of it…"

"Haunting, mystical music, monumental in scope, stunning in conception. amazing command of the orchestra, and all aspects of composition. I'm looking forward to hearing more of your music, Pavel, especially any pieces you may have done that…"

"Yes, Greg, you're absolutely right. When I typed this score, I wanted to make a large page size, to make it easier to read music, but the opposite happened. Now I prefer to type the score in A4 format and, if it is necessary, increase it…"

"Very nice work. Thanks for being able to post a live recording. I think it would be instructional to hear an electronic version of this also. As to the score. Depending on the software, PDF versions don't always look as good as the…"

"This is obviously extremely well done, and since you already deal with live orchestral performances any comments regarding the instrumentation are probably unnecessary at this point. You know your stuff. What made me wonder a bit, though, is the…"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
Pavel YAKOVLEV was born on April 12th 1989 in Saint Petersburg. He started studying music at the age of 4. From 2002 till 2007 he studied at the Secondary Specialized Music School-Lyceum of the St. Petersburg Conservatory. In 2007 he won the 1st prize at the V. A. Gavrilin youth composing competition. In the same year he finished the Lyceum and entered the St. Petersburg Conservatory at the faculty of composing (A. D. Mnatsakanyan's class) and graduated from it with honours in 2012.

Pavel Yakovlev's music is a reflection on the great versatility of the world and human life, the search of eternal values and comprehension of their essence. Philosophical and religious ideas, also Russian and German art, have always been sources of inspiration for the composer. Yakovlev works in various genres having written symphonies, concertos, and numerous chamber ensembles.

Hi Pavel, I listened to the 1st 6 1/2 minutes of your symphony... very impressive.

I'll hear more when I can. I can tell you are a serious student of this art and I really

 liked what I've heard. I believe you will do very well with composing. From what I

heard in this work , you have what it takes.  Excellent job... your 1st huh    RS

Pavel, I listened to the scherzo. It reminded me of Shostakovich in its frenetic energy. Yes, this was the light-hearted dessert I craved after hearing your symphony. As for influences (on your symphony), someone pointed-out Mahler. Parts of it reminded me of Sibelius, especially the begining, and some of the harmonic language. I'll definitely be checking out more of your music. By the way, that orchestra is pretty damn good, to say the least!

Haunting, mystical music, monumental in scope, stunning in conception. amazing command of the orchestra, and all aspects of composition. I'm looking forward to hearing more of your music, Pavel, especially any pieces you may have done that are on the lighter side. I say this because, although this Symphony is a great achievment, it is so dramatic and intense that it creates a desire for something more human, more approachable. Here you give us the Eternal. What have you done that gives us the present moment?
