 Music from the Great Patriotic War July 17, 2012 By Gordon C. (Rocklin, CA) See All My Reviews "The Russians called World War II "The Great Patriotic War," and still do. This music reflects that view of the war. One might expect the music from this series to be full of the kind of patriotic (or faux-patriotic) bombast that the powers-that were demanded, and while there is a certain amount of that in the music of Polovinkin and also that of Kochurov, which I also recently acquired, there is a surprising amount of variety and subtlety, and even moments where the music is reminiscent of Tchaikovsky and the Russian Five. Something has to be said about the liner notes in this series, which are translated inartfully at best, and at worst sound as if they were translated by a computer--but if you can slog through them, they tell some interesting stories."
