SVIRIDOV, G.V.: Russia Adrift / Snow is Falling / Music for Chamber Orchestra (Shkirtil, St. Petersburg State Symphony, Serov)

Georgy Sviridov was a celebrated figure whose vocal works, along with those of his teacher Shostakovich, are considered to be among the most important in twentieth-century Russian music. His ‘small cantata’ Snow is Falling includes passages of hypnotic stillness as well as folk-like warmth, while the major song cycle Russia Adrift evokes landscape, mysticism and religious faith, ending in a solemn hymn to the Motherland. Sviridov’s prolific output included symphonic suites as well as theatre and film scores. The angular and impassioned Music for Chamber Orchestra reveals his mastery of non-vocal music.
