World premiere recording

Begehren is a “dramaturgical” and compositional spur for music theatre in the 21st century: a parable on the dialectic of isolation, a man and a woman in a no man’s land of placeless-ness and a play on the potential possibilities behind reality. With a libretto after texts by Ovid, Virgil, Hermann Broch, Cesare Pavese and Günter Eich, this production was selected by a panel of 55 critics as the best worldwide premiere of the 2002/03 season

Tolstoy’s creative works were always the subject of excitement for Prokofiev. Having dismissed the idea of composing music on the subject of the novel “Resurrection” he became enthusiastic about “War and Peace”. Eleven of thirteen scenes were written within the year. Putting aside plenty (according to his opinion) of minor details the composer concentrated his attention on two main subject lines - lyrical and psychological connected with Natasha’s image and the patriotic one devoted to the ordeal of the Russian people in the Patriotic war of 1812. The conductor Samuel Samosud played rather important role in the destiny of the opera. He was a prominent person in the operatic art of the Soviet period. The opera survived re-birthing due to his support: first on the stage of the Bolshoi Hall of Moscow Conservatoire in 1945, then with Mali Opera Theatre Company in Leningrad. Being the last work of Prokofiev in the opera genre “War and Peace” combines the best features of the composer’s music talent.

Recorded in 2015
Firma Melodiya presents a recording of Leonid Desyatnikov’s opera The Children of Rosenthal.
It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that the premiere of the opera (2005, staged by Eimuntas Nekrošius) became one of the most significant events of Russian musical culture of the 21st century. It was the first time when the Bolshoi Theatre commissioned a new opera from a contemporary composer. The “experiment,” a result of collaboration between Leonid Desyatnikov and writer Vladimir Sorokin, left a bright footmark in the history of the country’s major music theatre.
The composer has showed his worth in very different academic genres - opera, ballet, symphony, concerto and chamber music, and yet his style can hardly be defined and arbitrarily forced into a Procrustean bed of stylistic designations unless the composer doesn’t mind the term “post-modernism.”
The renowned music critic Alexander Matusevich named the opera a “musical and stage realization of the ideas of modern culture.” It’s a story of five great composers (Mozart, Verdi, Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky) cloned by German scientist Rosenthal who fled to the USSR. The composers find themselves amidst the social landscape of post-Soviet Russia. It’s a story that gives birth to a peculiar play upon styles without any direct citations and adoptions, but with numerous musical, dramatic and other analogies that are unmistakably recognizable by the listener and create a fanciful mosaic of senses with a pseudoironic implication.
The opera was recorded in 2015 by the soloists, choir and orchestra of the Bolshoi Theatre of Russia led by Alexander Vedernikov, a chief conductor of the theatre in 2001 to 2009.
