Notes & Reviews:
Russian composer Galina Ustvolskaya wrote six Piano Sonatas. Spanning just over 40 years, these works are like a guidebook to her musical and spiritual growth. They vary widely in style, from the Shostakovich-inspired first sonata to the angular and technically avant-garde sixth sonata. This DVD (in PAL format) features a live performance of all six sonatas, each played by a different pianist. It was recorded at Moscow's School of Dramatic Arts, in its unusual Globe Hall, which is shaped like an octahedron. The acoustics of this space concentrated the sound and immersed the audience in Ustvolskaya's unique sound world.Notes & Reviews:
