About

This album comes In memoriam of Saulius Sondeckis, who was one of the figureheads of the former Soviet Union chamber music scene. In commemoration of this great musician it gives a summary of his famous readings of Shostakovichís chamber music.

It offers rarely played repertoire gems such as the film music to Hamlet and gives credit to another late outstanding soloist, the famous Bolshoi trumpet player Timofei Dokshitser. Last but not least it provides evidence on Sondeckiís capability as an arranger, transferring small ensemble music into the sonic language of a chamber orchestra.
