Notes and Editorial Reviews

This release is a collector’s item for connoisseurs of Romantic-era music seeking to expand their collection, or for anyone seeking to dip into the world of Russian chamber music who is unsure of where to start. The Russian chamber music genre is intimate and detailed, yet the music here packs in the emotional force of a symphony.

This substantial 25CD set offers a fascinating journey through one century of Russian Chamber Music. All Russian composers were active in this genre and often composed their most profound, personal music for it.

The repertoire spans 100 years from roughly 1850 till 1950, starting off with the classicist works by Michael Glinka and ending with the masterworks by Prokofiev and

 Superb Collection July 1, 2020 By Bruce  B. (Bradenton , FL) See All My Reviews "This collection includes both familiar pieces of Russian chamber music which one hears in concerts, i.e., Tchaikovsky, Arensky, Rachmaninoff, Borodin, Profoviev, Shostakovich, but also composers whose symphonic works I was aware of but their chamber music I did not know at all. For me it has been a great chance to listen repeatedly to those works." Report Abuse
