About

Firma Melodiya continues to present Russian chamber music for wind instruments. This disc features compositions written within a hundred years, between 1832 and 1932.

Trio pathétique by Mikhail Glinka, one of the first Russian chamber ensembles originally composed for clarinet, bassoon and piano (winds are often replaced with strings), received its continuation in Mily Balakirev’s octet. The future leader of The Five met Glinka at a young age and earned a praise of his talent.

An elegant music picture An Evening in Georgia by Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov presents an oriental area of Russian music. It was created under the impression of life in Tiflis (now Tbilisi), Georgia, where the composer lived for more than ten years and virtually led the music life of the city.

The Saxophone Quartet, a concluding piece of the programme, is one of the last works by the classical Russian composer Alexander Glazunov, composed in 1932. The composer was carried away with a new timbre of the saxophone and so excited with the sound of the musicians of the French National Guards orchestra that he wrote a composition especially for them in timbre colours which were so unusual for Russian music.

The recordings feature soloists and musicians of some of the leading Moscow orchestras. Remarkable pianists and winners of international competitions, People’s Artists of Russia Lyubov Timofeyeva and Alexei Nasedkin play the piano on the ensembles by Glinka and Balakirev.
