Classical | EAC (FLAC, cue, log) | Artwork | 00:58:00 | 226 MB
Label: Grand Piano | Catalogue No: GP678

With two world première recordings, this programme highlights the Romantic and spiritual side of contemporary music from Russia and Eastern Europe. Galina Ustvolskaya’s early Concerto expresses a vision of beauty and suffering in a tonal language quite unlike her later works. Giya Kancheli’s Sio or ‘breeze’ is notable for its striking use of silence, as well as modal tunes, bass drones and wide dynamic extremes derived from Georgian folk music. Silvestrov’s devotional Hymn reflects his approach to music as ‘a song the world sings about itself’. Elisaveta Blumina’s acclaimed recording of Silvestrov’s solo piano works can be heard on GP639.

Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov came of age in the 1950s and 1960s when the Soviet Union's grip on composition was strong, but as it loosened he explored the latest modernist trends before settling into the style for which he is best known, a serene simplicity that is similar in tone to much of the work of his contemporaries like Arvo Pärt and Giya Kancheli. His Fourth and Fifth symphonies, from 1976 and 1980-1982, are transitional works written with awareness of modern compositional procedures, but applied with warmth ………..

The great Bohemian-born composer Gustav Mahler once said, "A symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything." Over the course of its nearly 300-year life, the symphony has indeed embraced almost every trend to be found in Western concert music.

Célèbre pour son sens de la poésie et sa virtuosité hors pairs, le pianiste américain Emanuel Ax interprètera une œuvre majeure de Richard Strauss, Burlesque pour piano et orchestre, une œuvre exigeante écrite par Strauss à tout juste 21 ans. Lorsque Strauss compose son poème symphonique Une vie de héros à la fin du XIXe siècle, il a 34 ans. Il y exprime tout son talent, avec assurance, puissance musicale et une touche de pathos. Aucune autre de ses œuvres ne dévoile autant d’égocentrisme et d’aplomb. Dans le cadre de cet hommage à Richard Strauss, Andrés Orozco-Estrada et le Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra se confrontent à ce monument du répertoire orchestral.

Valentin Silvestrov is hardly a household name in the United States; however, in the Ukraine, he enjoys a similar standing to that of his Estonian counterpart Arvo Pärt. But that is where the resemblance ends. Whereas Pärt in his holy minimalism reinvents techniques that derive from Renaissance practice, Silvestrov's roots are planted in late Romanticism. His music is steeped in all of the emotion and drama that such a stylistic association would imply. Leggiero, pesante is a collection of Silvestrov's chamber music, and as an introduction to the musical world of Silvestrov, this ECM New Series release admirably fits the bill. Most impressive are the performances of the Sonata for violoncello and piano (1983) and the third Postludium by cellist Anja Lechner and pianist Silke Avenhaus. In these works, Silvestrov strives toward a synthetic union between the two instruments. Lechner and Avenhaus achieve this end spectacularly well and manage to blanket the performances in an emotional sensitivity that gives voice to Silvestrov's intentions, yet retains the personality of the performers.

Valentin Silvestrov composed Requiem for Larissa between 1997 and 1999 as a memorial to his wife, musicologist Larissa Bondarenko, who died in 1996. It is a big and unceasingly somber work, scored for chorus and orchestra. Understandably, this Requiem is to a degree reflective, incorporating musical themes drawn from older works that had special meaning to the couple. While Silvestrov's typically glacial tempos are in evidence here, some of the opening half of the piece has an angular spikiness that recalls serial techniques without actively engaging in them. Instrumentally, Requiem for Larissa is dark, atmospheric, and even a little cinematic; the choral parts are sparse and minimally applied. In the fourth-movement Largo, the voices take over and settle down into an ethereal texture that leavens the gloom somewhat, but by this time 25-and-a-half minutes have gone by and some listeners will have already tuned out owing to the toughness of the opening section.Requiem for Larissa is an intensely personal piece performed with respect and care by the Ukrainian National Chorus and Symphony Orchestra under conductor Vladimir Sirenko.

Silvestrov wrote the pieces recorded here, scored for piano solo, string orchestra, and piano and strings, between 1996 and 2005, and they are all representative of his late, meditative, song-like style. After an early career as an experimentalist, Silvestrov embraced the radical simplicity – a style of tonal, melodic, and rhythmic transparency – that has won him many admirers in the general public, but little recognition by the academic community. It would be easy to hear his music as derivative, given the limited tonal palette to which he restricts himself; his apparently naïve and artless approach, however, has an integrity and a genuinely lyrical impulse that make it hard to dismiss.
