Notes & Reviews:

Alexander Vasilyevich Mossolov was one of the most prominent Soviet experimentalist composers of the 1920s. Famed for his futurist orchestral piece The Iron Foundry, this 'constructivist' began to forge new directions through his use of motor rhythms, percussive attacks, and melodic angularity. He earned the admiration of Prokofiev but was eventually stifled by the dictates of Socialist Realism. Imprisoned for eight months in 1937, he later sank into obscurity and never regained his pre-war position. The dominant musical influence on the young avant-garde Alexander Vasilyevich Mossolov, not least in the piano Nocturnes, was Alexander Scriabin. The debt is clear in the music of the 1920s, a period when Mossolov was free to compose without hindrance from the authorities. The Sonatas are dramatic and almost symphonic in texture - modernist works of wide expressive power and visceral intensity that show him to have been one of the boldest and most complex composers of his time.
