This is the first time that these live recordings, made in the Pushkin Museum of fine Arts in December 1985, have been made available on CD. Richter performs Schumann’s Blumenstück, Concert Etude after Paganini Op. 10 No. 4 in C minor and the Piano Quintet in E flat major Op.44 together with the world renowned Borodin Quartet. Richter and Berlinskaya perform Six Impromptus for piano 4-hands Op.66.

“The World of Romanticism” was a subtitle of the famous Svyatoslav Richter’s music festival “December Nights”. Its programme, as it was the organizers’ intent, comprised compositions by Schubert, Schumann and Chopin. Ten day were devoted to the works of each of the composers. In the beginning of the night which opened the ten days of Robert Schumann, Svyatoslav Richter presented the audience with a Viennese bouquet Blumenstück, Op. 19. That was what they used to call flower still life paintings in Germany (German die Blume stands for a flower, and das Stück - a thing) which were hugely popular in the 19th century. According to the author, that elegant piece appeared to be “variations with no theme” and should have been titled Garland. But later the title was replaced with Blumenstück. Six impromptus for piano 4-hands Bilder aus Osten (“Pictures from the East”), Op. 66, were composed by Robert Schumann in 1848 and inspired by the short stories of Friedrich Rückert based on the stories The Transformations of Abu Said of Serug by Al-Hariri. The six impromptus formed a single poem with a subject resembling the evangelical parable of the prodigal son. This disc features the performance of Bilder aus Osten by Svyatoslav Richter and Lyudmila Berlinskaya. Robert Schumann first turned to Paganini’s works in 1832 (Six Concert Etudes, Op. 3), and then in 1833 (Six Concert Etudes, Op. 10). To Schumann, Paganini’s caprices were examples of how virtuosic technical means of the instrument could be enriched therefore facilitating the formation of the genre of concert etude. In these compositions, Schumann is a true co-author of Paganini. Schumann’s transcriptions contain lots of additions to the violin original, lots of new melodically bright second parts, for instance, in a sublime and doleful etude No. 4 in C minor included in this album. Schumann wrote Piano Quintet in E flat major, Op. 44, one of his best compositions, in the age of 32 and dedicated it to his wife, an outstanding pianist Clara Wieck. At the concert of 15 December, 1985, Piano Quintet in E flat major was performed by Svyatoslav Richter and the Borodin Quartet which included Mikhail Kopelman (1st violin), Andrei Abramenkov (2nd violin), Dmitri Shebalin (viola) and Valentin Berlinsky (cello).

These recordings were made at the end of the 1940’s at the time that magnetic recordings were being introduced in the USSR. The first (German) recordings appeared at Moscow radio in 1945 and shortly afterwards they began to be produced in the USSR. These are important documents from this time and provide a fascinating insight into early recording techniques.

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).

Glazunov:
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

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)
