Subcollection: Piano and Cello

DAR-TRIO, an ensemble of musicians formed of Dmitri Klimov (piano), Alexander Kalashkov (violin) and Rustam Komachkov (cello) - appeared in 2000. The ensemble and its story are not quite trivial: after a number of joint concerts the three performers with successful professional careers, all of whom had matured into bright personalities in the world of classical music, decided to form a permanent group. Among the factors, which determined the appearance of the unique trio, were the musicians’ talents of solo-performers and a lucky combination of their very varied creative temperaments, as well as the ability to become equal partners in the process of performance. The DAR-TRIO concerts have been always marked by the specific atmosphere of live communication with the audience. The trio’s concerts stand out thanks to the specific energy, which allows the performers to breathe a new life into even well-known works. A carefully chosen repertoire, the subtlety of performance, combined with the unique professional mentality - all of this creates a very special aura. During the period of its concert activity the DAR-TRIO has acquired a permanent audience, which faithfully attend the ensemble’s performances. The trio is characterized by the aspiration to transcend the limits of the traditional trio repertoire - the ensemble is an open system willing to accept various, even the most daring, creative ideas. Autumn 2001 saw the first album of DAR-TRIO: two CDs with the trios by Schubert. In 2002, a new creation of the ensemble was recorded: the Kaleidoscope collection (original pieces, arrangements and musical fantasies). This CD, with chef d’euvres by Schostakovich and Sviridov, shows another side of their talents.
Dmitri Klimov is a graduate of P. Messner’s piano class of Moscow Conservatoire. Since 1980 he has been a soloist of Moscow Concert Philharmonic Society. He not only gives solo recitals but also performs with symphony and chamber orchestras, as well as in chamber ensembles with many well-known musicians in different cities of Russia, former USSR countries and abroad. Dmitri Klimov is a member of the International Scriabin Foundation and the International Association of Piano Duos. His concerts have been recorded for the Russian Radio and TV, and for foreign radio stations such as the BBC, Radio West etc. In 1996 the Dutch label Ottavo Recordings launched a CD of music by Medtner and Scriabin performed by him. In 1975, after graduating from the Moscow Central Music College, Alexander Kalashkov studied in the Moscow Conservatoire. His teachers were professors D. Tsyganov and Z. Shikhmursayeva. Since 1980 he has been a member of the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra. In the 1986 he became the 1st Assistant of the Leader of the Orchestra, then Leader of the Orchestra. Alexander Kalashkov worked with prominent Russian conductors, such as Gennadi Rozhdestvensky, Yevgeny Svetlanov, Alexander Lazarev, Yuri Simonov. Lately he has successfully combined the role of the Bolshoi Theatre Leader (the first violin) with the work of the Orchestra leader in other Moscow orchestras (the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, the State Cinematography Orchestra). Performs as a soloist and a member of different ensembles.
Having graduated from the Moscow Music College named after the Gnesins, Rustam Komachkov became a student of the Moscow Conservatoire, where he studied cello with professor Valentin Feygin. He was a post-graduate student of professor Alexander Melnikov and also studied with Alexander Knyazev.

In these pieces, the classical traditions of transcription are developed but they also have some specific features; the pieces are written for an ensemble of two instruments and for concrete soloists; the music of the transcriptions is a full, instrumentally elaborate version of the authors' scores. Maxim Fedotov and Galina Petrova confess that, while performing these pieces, they don't pursue the aim of competing with the orchestra; the goal is to express their attitude to the great compositions by the means of their own beloved instruments.

This recording has been made by musicians united almost by chance - thanks to the occasion. They do not form a permanent ensemble and they are all otherwise engaged in their own projects. The music that they have recorded together does not take a leading place in their repertoire, possibly because it is considered not really "serious" by "serious" musicians. Even for the composers whose works are featured these pieces are not essential. Sometimes even the most uncompromising artist gives up his ambition for a while for the sake of popular recognition and approval. But even when composing "accidental" music a true artist would express another, quite different side of his creative individuality following the high standards previously set for himself.
The occasion played its role not only in creation of the pieces featured here, but also in the lives of the composers.

Moscow Trio : Vladimir Ivanov, violin / Alexander Bonduriansky, piano / Mikhail Utkin, cello

Valery Tarakanov was born in 1934. Both his parents were scientists specializing in medicine; they were great music-lovers and it was a family tradition to play classical music at home. Valery Tarakanov graduated from school with a Gold medal. Later, he studied at the Moscow State University Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty (graduated with distinction in 1956). He followed the postgraduate course at the Mathematics Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. Since 1961, Valery Tarakanov works in the same Institute; at present, he is one of the leading scientists at the Institute, doctor of mathematics, the author of several monographs and more than 150 scientific works.
Mr. Tarakanov's musical talent led him to the Vladimir Stassov music School where he studied as a violinist and later to the Ippolitov-Ivanov Musical College. Later on, he improved his skills, taking lessons from many prominent piano and music theory professors. He was especially interested in composition and studied with famous composers Andrei Volkonsky, Eduard Khagagortyan and Edisson Denissov. His brother, Mikhail Tarakanov, an eminent musicologist, also had important impact on his creative life. Among those who played significant part in Valery Tarakanov's musical development was, surprisingly, his mathematics professor Igor Schafarevich, an outstanding scientist, member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. The composer himself thinks that he awes to academic Schafarevich his ability to feel the logic of musical form, construct and organize the music (an absolutely necessary part of composing, which does not affect the emotional side).

The name of Valery Tarakanov is well known in the musical world. His compositions - the opera "Antony and Cleopatra", Vespers, Liturgy, violin and cello concertos, vocal cycles, romances and works for choir - are performed in the important concert halls of Moscow and other Russian cities. Many popular radio stations - "Orpheus", "Radio of Russia" and others, include them in their programs. Among the performers - most eminent Russian musicians, orchestras, choirs: the choir of the Academy of the Choir art, "The Seasons" Chamber orchestra, the soloists of the famous "Moscow trio" - Alexander Bonduriansky, Vladimir Ivanov and Mikhail Utkin, Mikhail Tolpygo and many others. Since 1995 Valery Tarakanov is a member of the Composer's Union of Russia; he participates in its musical and social activities.
The music of this exceptionally talented composer, bright and sincere, expressive and highly intellectual, cannot leave the listener indifferent; his works have become widely known among those who love the musical art.

Let us be like the sun for voice, violin and piano, op.29 in four movements on the verses by Konstantin Balmont. The first piece, "The Dead Ships", is mournful and meditative. The dead ships symbolize the souls of the people who have passed away. All human deeds and hopes seem to be vain. The second movement, "Eternal Aspiration", in contrast with the first one, is inspired by the idea of creative activity and thirst for knowledge. The third ("Only where you are") and fourth ("Let us be like the sun") embody the love for God and aspiration for eternity. The violin is not just accompanying the soloist; the violin part is elaborate and quite original. The third movement, for instance, is a dialogue of tenor and violin; the piano does not participate.

Sonata for violin and cello in four movements, op. 27.
Sonata is a duo of the two string instruments, which contains four movements. The music depicts a panorama of the relationship of the two people, two loving partners, husband and wife. The first movement is a lyrical dialogue, full of tenderness and harmony, embodying love, unity of purpose. In the second movement, there is an agitated atmosphere of a heated argument, with some elements of obstinacy and even with something capricious in it, but without any estrangement. The music of the third movement - Menuet - is full of mild lyricism. The energetic music of the Finale sometimes reminds the "arguments" of the second movement. In the end, the theme of unity and love from the first movement appears. But in the last bars we hear another funny "hot discussion".

A Chest of Fairytales. Trio for piano, violin and cello ¹ 2 in four movements. Each movement has a program: it is based upon one of the famous children's fairytales. The first movement embodies the tale of the Little Red Riding Hood. The music depicts all the details of the story just as they happen. In the other movements, the music doesn't follow al the events, showing only some of the episodes. The second part, Thumbelina, depicts the birth of the little girl, her games and songs, boating in a plate full of water, and then the arrival of the King of Elves and his proposal, the elves greeting their queen. The third movement is dedicated to the story of the Sleeping Beauty. The music embodies the terror and embarrassment when the Princess pricks her finger, the spellbound kingdom that falls asleep and the magic forest that grows up around the castle, and in the end - the anticipation of the kingdom's future awakening. The fourth movement - "Little Muck - the royal footman". Little Muck is running unceasingly, desperately in his magic shoes, until he remembers the spell that can stop them. The music of these four pieces is based upon the rhythms of the four old dances: Passepied, Courante, Siciliana and Galop. The parts of all instruments are very elaborate.

The Seasons. Suite for cello and piano in four movements, op. 24. A traditional theme - human reaction to the periods of the year's circle that follow each other. Four pieces of the suite embody the four seasons.

The spring. The ebullient young forces of the Nature arise after the long winter's sleep, sweeping off all the obstacles in their way. The picture of spring is embodied in the energetic and impetuous music of this piece, full of contrasts of musical themes, with the bright virtuosity of the cello part.

The summer. A nocturne that depicts a poetic night scene. Now, when the nature is rich and abundant, in the deep of the night a love scene takes place. Passionate words of confession, declarations of love, tender whisper of the two lovers are heard.

The autumn. An intermezzo. The music of this movement is full of sadness and melancholy. These are the moments of extinction, the Nature's farewell: the Nature, in its beautiful attire, is about to fall asleep.

The winter. The continuos motion of this movement depicts a picture of a snow-fall, followed by a real snow and wind storm.
