Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Russian composer Sergei Vasilenko (1872 - 1956) was influenced by the 19th-century nationalist school, by his teacher Taneyev, and by Scriabin, adding an interest in Symbolism and hints of early modernism. The discovery of the seven viola compositions on this CD - most of them unknown before now - expands the repertoire of the instrument and points to the courage of a composer who spent his life treading the tightrope between his own musical interests and the demands of Soviet "socialist realism."
