Schnittke: Symphony no 9; Raskatov: Nunc dimittis / Dennis Russell Davies, Elena Vassilieva, et al

Notes & Reviews:

"This 2009 ECM disc containing the world premiere of Alfred Schnittke's Ninth Symphony, the composer's final work, will be mandatory listening for fans of post-modernist Russian music, or contemporary music in general... There's no denying this is the authentic voice of Schnittke: the etiolated textures, abrupt gestures, timeless tempos, and haunting themes have clear roots in the composer's preceding works. Davies and the excellent Dresdner Philharmonie appear acutely conscious that the Ninth was the composer's last work, but the tone of leave-taking is inherent in Schnittke's inward music... Recorded in ECM's transparent yet immediate digital sound, this disc is unquestionably one of the most important issues of the year." -All Music Guide
