Notes & Reviews:

Georgy Sviridov's best known works are intimately linked with the name of Pushkin. The score to the film The Blizzard, after Pushkin's novel, was composed in 1964. It has outlived the film, becoming a self-sufficient and incredibly popular symphonic piece. Pushkin's Garland, for soloists, choir and instrumental ensemble, was the composer's offering for the poet's 180th anniversary. This choir cycle opened a new page of Sviridov's creative path, anticipating his late vocal opuses.
