Notes and Editorial Reviews

Violinist Kolja Blacher, with appearances on six past phil.harmonie releases, returns for the seventh time with two works by the 20th c. Russian master Dmitri Shostakovich. Together with a cellist, pianist and three percussionists, the sextet offer interpretations of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 15 and the Suite für varieté-orchester, in both cases realized for these forces by Viktor Derevianko (Symphony) and Oriol Cruixent (Suite). Mr. Blacher, a Berlin native, has pursued a busy and diverse career since his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic in 1988.
