One of the most important works of Tishchenko is his ballet Yaroslavna inspired by The Tale of Igor’s Campaign, Russia’s great monument of literature dated the 12th century, which has always attracted creators of diverse kind of arts since its recovery in the early 19th century. The premiere of the ballet on the stage of Leningrad Academic Maly Opera and Ballet Theatre was held on 30 June 1974. The catalyst of the unusual, daring production was the theatre itself, which has been inclined to experimenting for many decades of its existence. The libretto was written by the theatre’s chief ballet master Oleg Vinogradov, who contributed to the production not only as choreographer, but also as stage designer.
The Third Symphony of Boris Tishchenko consists of five movements. The first four are interlinked and form ‘Meditations’. The fifth movement, ‘Postscript’, is somewhat estranged, which may be explained by the idea to relieve the strain and drama of the preceding movements.
Recorded at Petersburg Recording Studio, 1976 (Yaroslavna) and 1972 (Symphony)
