Notes and Editorial Reviews

Georgy Sviridov’s most impressive musical works featured the human voice: romances, cantatas, oratorios, and hymns. His instrumental chamber music is less well-known, but makes up a valuable and essential portion of his musical legacy. If we divide music into three types according to Boethius, we can affirm that musica humana is well and alive in Sviridov’s musica instrumentalis. The result is actually a new synthesis, equivalent to what we conventionally call musca mundane, “universal music.” With that term we certainly do not mean World Music- which has resulted from cultural globalization- since Sviridov, quite to the contrary, was a down to earth authentic Russian composer. Sviridov wrote most of his piano pieces and instrumental music Read more at a time wen he was bringing his unmistakeable individual style and unique artistic approach to full fruition. Today, that style is admired as a harmonious blend between Russian folk music traditions, universal music, and certain progressive 20th century ideas. Read less
