Anthology of Piano Music by Russian and Soviet Composers
Part 2 Disc 7: From 1991 to Now

“Russian Piano Music Today: Teachers and Pupils”. This could be an apt title of the next, seventh, volume of the Anthology of 20th Century Russian Piano Music realized by Firma Melodiya jointly with the Tikhon Khrennikov Foundation and the National Foundation of Rightholders Support. The featured compositions reflect the spectrum of piano music in Russia for the last 20 years.

Tolib Shahidi’s works are arguably the brightest ones on the seventh disc. A son of the founder of Tajik professional music Ziyodullo Shahidi and a graduate of Aram Khachaturian’s class at the Moscow Conservatory, Tolib Shahidi has successfully synthesized national cultural features of Tajikistan with the achievements of Russian and European music. His works are now performed in many countries of the world.

Kirill Volkov, Tatiana Chudova and Yuri Vorontsov are representatives of the academic tradition of Russian music. Pupils of the outstanding masters Aram Khachaturian, Tikhon Khrennikov and Evgeny Golubev, they also combine their creative and teaching careers. While Vorontsov’s piece Sirius evokes cosmic associations, the sonatas by Chudova and Volkov are inspired with nature of Russian north.

Music of the new generation of composers is represented with the works by Alexei Sysoyev and Alexei Sergunin. Sysoyev, who began his career as a jazz musician, graduated from the Moscow Conservatory under Tatiana Chudova. Sergunin is also a Moscow Conservatory graduate who studied piano under Ksenia Knorre and composition under Alexander Tchaikovsky. Today, both of the young musicians take part in the most topical events of Russian music life.

Contemporary piano music is performed by young pianists, worthy representatives of the Russian performing school such as Ekaterina Mechetina, Irina Bogdanova, Lukas Geniušas, Nikita Mndoyants, Yuri Favorin and Fyodor Amirov. The last three are also professional composers who give preference to contemporary music in their programmes.

Firma Melodiya presents a solo album of Ekaterina Mechetina, a wonderful Russian pianist of the new generation.

A graduate of the Moscow Conservatory where she studied under associate professor Vladimir Ovchinnikov and professor Sergey Dorensky, and a laureate of the Youth Prize “Triumph” and seven prestigious international competitions, Ekaterina Mechetina began to conquer the musical Olympus at a very early age.

The young pianist’s first concert took place when she was ten. Her pianistic gift was acknowledged by some of the great masters of 20th century music art. So, Rodion Shchedrin entrusted her with the world premiere of his sixth piano concert after he heard her for the first time; Mstislav Rosropovich invited her to perform with the orchestra he conducted. Ekaterina Mechetina has won the audiences of some of the world’s best venues. Today, the pianist plays over sixty concerts annually performing at some of the largest concert hall. Her repertoire includes about fifty piano concertos and dozens of solo programmes. She has worked with outstanding soloists, conductors, symphony and choir collectives of Russia and other countries. The pianist’s perfect mastery, bright creative individuality and amazing artistic charisma have won the hearts of listeners around the world. On this album, Ekaterina Mechetina appears as an inspired interpreter of Russian classical piano music. Apart from one of then greatest cycles of Russian music of the 19th century which is Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, it also includes eight of the études-tableaux from Rachmaninoff’s Op. 33 and two virtuosic pieces by Tchaikovsky - Dumka and Theme with Variations.
