Firma Melodiya presents an album of concert works by the outstanding Russian composer Alexander Glazunov.

“…An incredibly wide scope, power, inspiration, lightness of mighty moods, wonderful beauty, magnificent fantasy, sometimes humour, melancholy, passion and always amazing clarity and freedom of form”, this is how Vladimir Stasov, a critic and Glazunov’s contemporary, defined the main properties of the composer’s music.

A pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov and Balakirev, and a true successor of the traditions of The Five, Glazunov was also a great admirer of Tchaikovsky’s works and synthesized the two major traditions of the Russian music art of the 19th century in his music.

Glazunov’s Violin Concerto is among the most popular works of the world’s violin literature. The other featured pieces created during the composer’s late period when he lived abroad are less known.

The Concerto Ballata for cello and orchestra was ordered by and dedicated to the great cellist Pablo Casals. The Concerto for saxophone and orchestra was inspired by a performance of the National Guard orchestra in Paris. Amazed with the timbre of the instrument, then very rare in academic music, and a virtuosic performance, he created a piece where the saxophone in combination with string instruments sounds surprisingly softly and songfully in a Russian way.

Glazunov’s compositions are performed by the outstanding Russian musicians such as Viktor Tretiakov (violin), Mstislav Rostropovich (cello) and Lev Mikhailov (saxophone).

Violin Concerto in A minor, Op. 82
Viktor Tretiakov (violin)
The Moscow Symphony Radio Orchestra, Vladimir Fedoseyev

Concerto ballata in C major for cello and orchestra, Op. 108
Mstislav Rostropovich (cello)

Russian Chamber Music for Wind Instruments Vol. I. - Rimsky-Korsakov, Rubinstein

Russian Chamber Music for Wind Instruments Vol. I. - Rimsky-Korsakov,  Rubinstein
ID: MELCD1002099
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music

ReviewsFirma Melodiya presents the first disc from the series 'Russian Chamber Music for Wind Instruments' which includes recordings of rarely performed quintets for piano and wind instruments by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Anton Rubinstein.

Despite the identical line-ups (the quintets were composed for flute, clarinet, bassoon, horn and piano), each of the quintets reflects individual styles of their creators. Rubinstein’s work (1855) belongs to the early period of the prominent Russian pianist, composer, conductor and future founder of the first Russian conservatory. It is distinguished with the brightly virtuosic, concert and at the same time orchestral nature of the piano part.

Rimsky-Korsakov’s quintet was composed in 1876 for a chamber music competition of the Russian Music Society. Its poor premiere was a cause of the long and unjust oblivion of this interesting piece. Rimsky-Korsakov, who thoroughly mastered all the wind instruments, felt the individual nature and capabilities of each timbre.

The chamber works by Rimsky-Korsakov and Rubinstein are performed by outstanding representatives of the 20th century Russian performing school.

Rimsky Korsakov:
Quintet in B flat major for piano, flute, clarinet, horn & bassoon
Alexander Korneev (flute), Vladimir Zverev (clarinet), Boris Afanasyev (horn), Vladimir Vlasenko (bassoon) & Alexander Bakhchiev (piano)

Rubinstein:
Quintet in F major for Piano & Winds, Op. 55
Valentin Zverev (flute), Vladimir Sokolov (clarinet), Anatoly Demin (horn), Sergei Krasavin (bassoon) & Aleksey Nasedkin (piano)

Lubotsky Trio: Mark Lubotsky (violin), Ferdinand Erblich (viola), Olga Dowbusch-Lubotsky (cello)

Firma Melodiya presents a rarity of Russian chamber music, string quartets by Sergei Taneyev performed by Lubotsky Trio. In the early 20th century, they called Taneyev “musical conscience of Moscow.” Tchaikovsky’s best student and friend, the first recipient of the Big Gold Medal of the Moscow Conservatory, and a teacher of Rachmaninoff, Scriabin and other famous composers, Taneyev proved to be an outstanding pianist, composer, educator and music theorist.
A true master of polyphonic composition and a fine ensemble performer, Taneyev devoted special attention to thematic development, vibrant voiceleading, subtle palette of strokes, and sought to find an ideal balance between emotional and rational in music. The chamber and instrumental genres were perhaps the ones that answered his artistic demands to the greatest extent.
Two string trios - E flat major, Op. 31, and B minor (no opus) - on this album belong to the 1910’s, the last period of Taneyev’s life. The latter one remained unfinished and was published many years after the composer’s death.
Taneyev’s trios are performed by Mark Lubotsky, a remarkable violinist and representative of the Russian performing school, and his trio composed of Mark Lubotsky, German violist Ferdinand Erblich and cellist Olga Dowbusch-Lubotsky. A graduate of the Moscow Conservatory, a student of Abram Yampolsky and David Oistrakh, and a prize-winner of the 1st Tchaikovsky International Competition in 1958, Mark Lubotsky now resides in Germany and still combines his performing career with teaching.
The recording was made in Germany in 2015, the year of the 100th anniversary of the prominent Russian composer’s death.

Firma Melodiya presents an album of young but already world renowned musicians, violinist Aylen Pritchin and pianist Lukas Geniušas.
A native of St. Petersburg, Aylen Pritchin graduated from the Moscow Conservatory where he studied with professor and People’s Artist of the USSR Eduard Grach. Aylen is a winner of numerous awards and prizes, including a special prize of the judges of the XIV Tchaikovsky International Competition in 2011 and a grand prix of the Long-Thibaud Competition in 2014.
He is a scholarship holder of the New Names and Russian Performing Art foundations, and a participant of the Stars of the 21st Century project of the Moscow Philharmonic Society.
The name of Lukas Geniušas became known in wide quarters of domestic music lovers after he received a silver medal at the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 2010. In 2015, the pianist was awarded the second prize of the XV Tchaikovsky International Competition and won rave reviews from the critics. A grandson of the famous pianist and professor
Vera Gornstayeva, Lukas Geniušas received his first contest award at the age of twelve. Today he plays concerts at the most prestigious venues of the world.
“It was clear right from his first touch upon the keyboard - we have a world class pianist before us … a remarkable and mature master with unforeseen prospects of a developing talent,” wrote a well-known critic about Lukas Geniušas. Aylen Pritchin and Lukas Geniušas perform works by Russian composers of the 19th and 20th centuries: Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s minicycle Souvenir d’un lieu cher, violin transcriptions of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet suites (co-written with Samuel Dushkin) and Leonid Desyatnikov’s Like the Old Organ-Grinder.

Firma Melodiya presents recordings of 20th century cello music performed by Oleg Vedernikov and Alexey Goribol.
The name of Alexey Goribol, a pianist, public figure, Honoured Artist of Russia and organizer of numerous festivals and music projects is well known to the domestic and foreign listeners, while the name of Oleg Vedernikov whose life ended up so tragically in 2015 is less known to a wide audience. This album is dedicated to the memory of the remarkable cellist.
A graduate of the Ural Conservatory in Sverdlovsk (now Yekaterinburg), Oleg Vedernikov won a silver medal of the 2nd All-Union cello Competition in Yaroslavl in 1988. Then he took a graduate course at the Moscow Conservatory with Natalia Shakhovskaya and was one of her favourite students. Together with Alexey Goribol Vedernikov won the first prize at the chamber competition in Trapani, Italy.
This recording was made in 1993 when Oleg Vedernikov’s performance, in his peers’ opinion, was on top of cello art. The cellist and the pianist make a brilliant ensemble unveiling the entire contradiction and figurative wealth of contemporary music. It was the first joint work to both of the musicians, and it was followed by many years of fruitful artistic partnership.
The album features cello sonatas by Dmitri Shostakovich and Alfred Schnittke, and works by Leonid Desyatnikov and Rodion Shchedrin.
