About this Recording

KALAFATI, V.: Symphony in A Minor / Légende / Polonaise (Choir of the Music Department of the University of Athens, Athens Philharmonia, Fidetzis)

Greek by parentage, Vasily Kalafati settled permanently in St Petersburg where he counted Rimsky-Korsakov among his teachers, and later included Igor Stravinsky among a distinguished roll-call of his own students. Kalafati’s style incorporated elements of the Russian National School into traditional forms, as can be heard in the wide-ranging contrasts and Romantic lyricism of his only Symphony. The Polonaise has a celebratory character with exceptionally bright orchestration, while the ingenious Légende commemorates Schubert by transforming his themes into a colourful late-Romantic symphonic poem that earned Kalafati some well-deserved distinction at its premiere.
