Product Description


technical comment

  • For those wanting to explore the chamber music of 20th-century master, Alfred Schinttke, this CD is the perfect place to start. The disc ends with a highly personal musical memorial to Schnittke by Leonard Elschenbroich as both composer and performer, who has had since his early years a deep interest in both the man and music: arguably the greatest Russian composer since Shostakovich.

    "Whilst the musics on this recording are formally very contrasting - neo-baroque stylisations vs. atonal modernism – it is the sentiment of Nostalgia that binds them all together. In the Russian sense of the word, compared to its use in English, Nostalgia is a feeling more painful, more severe, regarded with respectful fear. A dangerous disease, a tragic psychological endemic" Leonard Elschenbroich
