Notes & Reviews:

Maria Sournatcheva's SACD debut brings together works by Moscow composers from three generations. The ECHO Klassik award winning Gttingen Symphony Orchestra with the conductor Christoph-Mathias Mueller.

Valery Kikta composed four concertos for oboe. The Ukrainian composer had originally written the one-movement "Belgorod Concerto" for an orchestra enjoying great popularity in Russia and the Soviet Union and featuring folk instruments. The important role played by bells, jingle bells, and other percussion instruments including rattles and spoons is also clearly audible in the version for symphony orchestra.

Andrey Rubtsov, an internationally sought-after oboist born in 1982 who expertly employs the virtuosic resources of his instrument. Rubtsov reflects on his native Russia's considerable classicistic tradition posing a musical challenge to the orchestra.

Andrey Eshpai's oboe concerto forms the crowning conclusion of this SACD produced in brilliant transparency. In his oboe concerto Eshpai also refers to his ethnic roots. In a compositional style in keeping with modern times, Eshpai conjures up a tonal idiom all of his own lending new expression to the power of folk art in multiethnic Russia.

Released as dual layer hybrid SACD playable on all CD players.
