The symphony works fine. Undeniably. But still I have the feeling that Borodin did not really know too much about being governed by bar lines. He just had a free muse. He just sort of did it. And so, on paper, it looks awkward." Albert-George: "Some of the phrases and phrasings he wrote for the symphony orchestra, in the 2nd Symphony in particular, I remember looking at it for the first time and thinking 'What a klutz.' But basically he was not as refined in technique. And the tunes work."
