The title of ECM's release of works by three composers born in the former Soviet Union perfectly captures the mood of the CD – it is truly mysterious. Although more than half a century separates the first of these pieces from the most recent, they share a sense of otherness that defies easy explanation. The pieces are not so much mysterious in the sense of being eerie (although there are several moments that might raise the hairs on the back of your neck if you were listening alone in the dark); they are unsettling because they raise more questions than they answer.

Sometimes there is a perfect match between repertoire, conductor, and orchestra: this album is one such example. Featuring the music from two ballets by Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian, it is very accessible to those who claim they do not like classical music, as its 20th century tonalities and film score-like qualities completely draw the listener in. The first track is dramatic and grand, worthy of a gladiator like Spartacus, and it leads into an adagio that is ethereal with cellos and harps.

Even with 15 other versions of Rimsky's masterpiece of orchestral virtuosity to choose from — some in the top flight — this was recognized from the first as one of the most rewarding, thanks largely to Krebbers's exceptionally sweet, gently appealing and bewitching personification of the story - spinning Scheherazade and to Kondrashin's skill in pacing and shaping movements as a whole, relating the diverse tempos and building up tension and dynamics by careful control so as to create climaxes of thrilling intensity and power. the 'shipwreck' finale, in particular, was overwhelming; and this was achieved without resorting to the ultra - fast tempos adopted by some conductors to whip up excitement. The Concertgebouw's crisp, sonorous and sensitive playing (full marks both to the splendid strings and to the wind soloists) was caught with the utmost fidelity; but the Compact Disc's total exclusion even of minimal extraneous background now marks a still further improvement, as can be judged by the dead silence against which Scheherazade's pleadings are heard. The final coda is ravishingly beautiful.

Denis Kozhukhin catapulted to international celebrity when he captured first prize at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Competition in May 2010. Appearances at major concert venues followed, including at Carnegie Hall and the Leipzig Gewandhaus. Invitations for other major debuts flooded in and Kozhukhin toured the globe, impressing critics and dazzling audiences. Kozhukhin is an imposing figure when he walks on-stage: tall and thin, with long blond hair tied in a ponytail, he sits down to play with an all-encompassing technique and sense of total confidence.

Weinberg’s works remained in the shadow of his great contemporary Dmitri Shostakovich for a long time. In the meantime, Shostakovich himself highly appreciated the composing talent of his younger colleague. However, Weinberg’s vivid composing individuality, which combined elements of Jewish, Polish and Russian national cultures, allows us to speak about him as one of the most significant phenomena of domestic music of the second half of the 20th century…

Kirill Chenkin - Il cacciatore capovolto. Il caso Abel
Italian | Adelphi | 2016 | ASIN: B01B4XLUCS| 334 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

All'epoca dei fatti si consideravano già clamorosi i nudi dati di questa vicenda: l'abbattimento sul suolo sovietico di un aereo spia U2, la cattura del suo pilota, Gary Powers, le lunghe trattative che poi condussero a consegnare ai russi, in cambio di Powers, una loro spia arrestata anni prima a Brooklyn: Rudolf Abel. E la sua scena conclusiva era quanto di più cinematografico: la luce livida di un piovoso mattino di febbraio del 1962, il ponte di Glienecke a Berlino, le due delegazioni che si scambiano i prigionieri. Non sorprende che Steven Spielberg ci abbia costruito intorno Il ponte delle spie. Il film però è la storia di James Donovan, l'avvocato di Abel, quindi risponde solo di passaggio alla domanda cui molti anni fa, con lo scrupolo ossessivo di un ex agente del KGB, ha tentato di rispondere, in questo libro, Kirill Chenkin: chi era Rudolf Abel?
