Firma Melodiya continues to present Russian chamber music for wind instruments.

This disc features compositions written within a hundred years between 1832 and 1932.

Trio pathétique by Mikhail Glinka, one of the first Russian chamber ensembles originally composed for clarinet, bassoon and piano (winds are often replaced with strings) received its continuation in Mily Balakirev’s octet. The future leader of The Five met Glinka at a young age and earned a praise of his talent. An elegant music picture An Evening in Georgia by Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov presents an oriental area of Russian music. It was created under the impression of life in Tiflis (now Tbilisi), Georgia, where the composer lived for more than ten years and virtually led the music life of the city. Saxophone Quartet, a concluding piece of the programme is one of the last works by the classical Russian composer Alexander Glazunov composed in 1932. The composer was carried away with a new timbre of the saxophone and so excited with the sound of the musicians of the French National Guards orchestra that he wrote a composition especially for them in timbre colours which were so unusual for Russian music.

The recordings feature soloists and musicians of some of the leading Moscow orchestras, including such outstanding musicians as harpist Emilia Moskovityanova, flutist Valentin Zverev, clarinetist Vladimir Sokolov, violinist Andrei Korsakov, cellist Fyodor Luzanov, saxophonist Lev Mikhailov and others. Remarkable pianists and winners of international competitions, People’s Artists of Russia Lyubov Timofeyeva and Alexei Nasedkin play the piano on the ensembles by Glinka and Balakirev.

Melodiya presents an album of works for bassoon by West European composers performed by Sergei Krasavin.

An Honoured Artist of Russia, professor of the Gnessins Russian Academy of Music and prize-winner of the international competitions in Prague, Budapest and Munich, Sergei Krasavin is a reputable representative of the Russian performing school. After graduation from the Leningrad Conservatory where he studied bassoon under professor Dmitri Yeryomin, he was a soloist of the orchestra of the Leningrad Kirov State Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet (now the Mariinsky Theatre), then a soloist of the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra, the country’s best one. In 1992 to 2006, he played in the French National Orchestra. The bassoonist has also regularly performed as a solo and ensemble musician. A virtuosic technique, expressed emotionality, the sound of rare beauty and an innate sense of form and style are virtues that can be used to describe the musician’s artistic gift.

Sergei Krasavin performs concertos for bassoon and orchestra by Antonio Vivaldi (he was the first composer to “discover” the bassoon as a virtuosic concerto instrument), a rare piece of Mozart - the Sonata for bassoon and cello, and the Sonata for bassoon and piano by Camille Saint-Saëns, the great French master’s last work.

Pianist Alexei Nasedkin and cellist Yuri Loyevsky, two of the leading representatives of Soviet performing art, took part in the recording along with Sergei Krasavin. The Ensemble of Soloists of the USSR State Symphony Orchestra is conducted by maestro Yuri Temirkanov.
