Notes and Editorial Reviews

Firma Melodiya presents #austriaintime, an album with chamber works written by young Russian composers timed to coincide with the Russian-Austrian year of tourism. The four Russian composers are recent graduates of the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory, and have presented four small pieces that have the same instrumental line-up and creative challenge – they were to pick up a part of Austria as an inspiration.

Its capital Vienna is the city where some of the greatest composers lived and created. Needless to say that the Vienna Read more State Opera and Philharmonic Orchestra still top the list of the world’s best music companies. Denis Khorov’s Music for Oneself is dedicated to Vienna; Anna Romashkova’s Partly Cloudy was inspired by the famous spa town Bad Ischl located in Upper Austria and associated with the names of Brahms, Bruckner, Lehár and Johann Strauss II; Kuzma Bodrov (arguably the best known of the four composers) dedicated his Partita to a steppe landscape of Burgenland, a state bordering with Hungary; the leader of a contemporary music centre Sanzhar Baiterekov built his structural composition Outlines of Steiermark having in mind the highest peaks of the largest cities of a southeastern state of Styria.
