Notes & Reviews:
Taneyev's massive, lush cantata is steeped in both Russian nationalist tradition, yet is surprisingly cosmopolitan and 'internationalist' in both orchestration and musical style. Mikhail Pletnev's spectacular new recording of 'At the Reading of a Psalm', reveals Taneyev's triumphant final work as a significant choral masterpiece nearly nine decades after its completion.
