About

While greatly revered in Russia, the profound and beautiful music of neo-romantic composer Georgy Sviridov (1915Ė1998) is hardly known beyond his homelandís borders. His predominantly vocal output reflects his strong affinity for many of the finest Russian poets, who inspired him to compose highly idiomatic music to match the emotional intensity and expressive passion of their verses. Thus did Sergei Yeseninís vivid and moving poetry spark the creation of the stunning twelve-song cycle Russia Cast Adrift.

Legendary baritone (and cherished Delos artist) Dmitri Hvorostovsky developed especially strong personal and artistic bonds with Sviridov in the composerís final years, compelling Sviridov to compose specifically for him. Dmitri infuses Sviridovís songs with the same emotional intensity, musical insight and sheer vocal glory that have distinguished his many earlier Delos releases.

Joining Dmitri in this world premiere recording of the orchestral version are his long-time collaborators Constantine Orbelian, conducting the St Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra, and the Russian folk music ensemble Style of Five.
