Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Melodiya presents one of the most significant choral works by modern composer Rodion Shchedrin, composed after Nikolai Leskov' s story The Sealed Angel. Shchedrin repeatedly worked in the choral genre; he was often attracted to religious plotlines and liturgical texts. And still, the choral music to The Sealed Angel has a special, personal imprint that reflects how the composer perceived Leskov, and Russian spirituality. "If the so-called Russian soul really exists, there' s no one who can answer this sacramental question better than Leskov," Shchedrin wrote.
