Notes & Reviews:

Alfred Schnittke (1934-1998), of German/Jewish decent, was born and raised in the former Soviet Union. From the mid-1970s he won great popularity in his home country, perhaps the greatest popularity ever enjoyed by a living composer, and his popularity subsequently spread to the rest of the Western world. During the 1970s and 1980s Schnittke's music represented most sincere and full expression of Soviet culture and Soviet life. Far better than words, his music explained, reflected and gave evidence of the social, psychological and cultural standing of the Soviet Union. This, the Soviet censors understood instinctively, and that was the reason why Schnittke was persecuted by the system to an unheard of extent, even for the standards of the Soviet regime. Other musicians and ordinary Russians also saw this and they therefore crowded in huge numbers whenever his music was secretly performed or performed in distant parts of the country. Such conditions are the prerequisite for the music on this CD and the present three works should be seen in that light.
