Highlights of the Russian opera

During the eighteenth century, especially at the time of Catherine the Great, Russia enjoyed a lively opera life; however, it was not until the nineteenth century that the national Russian opera was created. Musical life at the court of the Czar was predominantly oriented towards the West and attracted, for example, many Italian composers to St. Petersburg. The works they wrote there were also mostly based on Italian libretti, and if a Russian opera was ever performed, it followed on musically in the tradition of the operas that could be heard in Naples, Milan or Vienna.
A slow change came about in this situation during the first half of the nineteenth century, after Russia also began to be influenced by the sense of nationhood which was spreading through great parts of Europe in that period. Furthermore, this was the time during which the well-to-do middle class began to participate increasingly in the cultural life, and therefore, it is not just a coincidence that the birth of the national Russian opera more or less concurred with the opening of the ‘Great’ or ‘Bolshoi’ Theatre in Moscow in 1825.

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.
