Galina Pisarenko (Nastenka) & Anatoly Mishchevsky (The Dreamer)

“The best traditions of domestic music culture live on in Yuri Butsko’s deeply national music,” wrote Music in the USSR magazine.

When a student of the Moscow Conservatory, Butsko composed the opera Diary of a Mad Man after Nikolai Gogol (1963) which subsequently became generally recognized. Firma Melodiya presents a recording of Yuri Butsko’s opera White Nights based on a novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

Giving his opera a subtitle “sentimental”, the composer emphasized its lyric and intimate orientation as if continuing the line of Tchaikovsky’s “lyric scenes”. Moreover, White Nights is a chamber opera where the events are given through a lyric narration and the monologues of its two characters Nastenka and Dreamer who is in love with her create a basis of the dramatic concept. Following Mussorgsky’s and Prokofiev’s traditions, the composer preserved Dostoyevsky’s original prosaic text revealing a peculiar poetic musicality of the great writer’s early romantic novel.

White Nights was premiered in Dresden in 1968 to a great success, however it has never been staged in this country.

The recording was made by Gennady Rozhdestvensky, a recognized interpreter of 20th century music, and the All-Union Radio Big Symphony Orchestra in 1973 with the participation of Galina Pisarenko and Anatoly Mishchevsky, People’s Artists of the RSFSR and soloists of the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre.

NIKOLAI RIMSKY-KORSAKOV - MOZART AND SALIERI - THE NOBLEWOMAN VERA SHELOGA

Firma Melodiya presents an album with two rare operas of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - The Noblewoman Vera Sheloga and Mozart and Salieri.
Both of the one-act operas were written in the second half of the 1890s, in the period of the great Russian composer’s new heyday. Mozart and Salieri continued a peculiar tradition that was begun by Alexander Dargomyzhsky in The Stone Guest, a musical incarnation of Alexander Pushkin’s Little Tragedies. Similar to its predecessor, Rimsky-Korsakov did not change anything in Pushkin’s text turning the opera into a continuous dialogue of two characters. The citation from Mozart’s Requiem wonderfully fits into the musical development of the opera that is based on a striking contrast between the descriptions of the symbolically generalized figures - the Genius and the Envious One.
The Noblewoman Vera Sheloga emerged as an addition (prologue) to Rimsky Korsakov’s opera The Maid of Pskov that he worked on in those years. The scale and certain independence of this musical and dramatic picture that tells a story of secret love between the young Ivan the Terrible and a young boyarynia, as well as the difference in the author’s musical style that evolved over twenty years of his artistic career, induced him publish The Noblewoman Vera Sheloga as an individual work.
Rimsky-Korsakov’s operas were recorded in 1986 by the company of the USSR Bolshoi Theatre led by the prominent conductor Mark Ermler starring Tamara Milashkina, Nina Grigorieva, Evgeny Nesterenko, Alexander Fedin and other leading soloists of the theatre.
