Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Russian-born composer and conductor Nikolai Tcherepnin (1873-1945) was Rimsky-Korsakov student and Prokofiev's teacher. This CD provides an overview of his ninety-plus songs, which cover a wide range of styles. The early ones are in a late-Romantic idiom; the Japanese Lyrics of 1923 display oriental colors; and the Oceanic Suite (1917-23), which sets a series of incantations by the symbolist poet Konstantin Balmont, are modern evocations of primitive ritual.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The Four Songs, Op. 8; Four Songs, Op. 16; and Fairy Tales, Op. 33, are late romantic in style, all well written. They are generally memorable in that they're beautiful songs. The Japanese Lyrics are the only set written after Tcherepnin's 1921 move to Paris; they are melancholy and spare. Mindlina does a fine job on all these songs; she has a brighter voice than what comes into my head when I think of a Russian soprano, and she's a delight to listen to. The Oceanic Suite: A Cycle of Incantations inhabits a different world than the other sets. The performances are fine; notes are in English, with texts in Russian and English.
