Notes and Editorial Reviews

(Snowstorm is an orchestral suite drawn from a film score.) “Sviridov created music for the film that was epic, romantic, tinged with nostalgia and above all, tuneful, which illustrated superbly his love for Russia, its history and its cultural heritage. Snowstorm was massively successful worldwide and each time it is heard on radio, interest in the composer rises” - James Murray

“Pushkin’s Garland is one of the richest Russian choral works of the 20th century as well as a first-rate tribute to Russia’s greatest poet. Pushkin’s full emotional range is here … Sviridov’s late-flowering choral garlands and wreaths should enter the repertoire of our own chamber choirs sooner rather than later.” - Gramophone
