Fiery Russian Masterworks

About

Extremely emotional, whilst not overly saccharine, music from the Russian repertoire is very popular among audiences for extravagant orchestrations and rich, full sound. It is imbued with a sense of great suffering but finds moments of joy and hope reflecting the rare peace and prosperity of the country. This collection from our Master Series highlights where you can hear Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich and Rachmaninov in 2020.

Magic and Mystery – Master Series 9

“It is sad, yet joyful, on a silent summer’s night, in a voiceless wood, to hear a Russian song. Here we find unlimited sadness without hope. Here, also is unconquerable strength and the unalterable stamp of Fate; here, also is iron predestination, one of the primitive foundations of the Russian national identity, through which much can be explained which seemed inexplicable in Russian life.”
