A remarkable album of works written specially for the celebrated Russian violinist Roman Mints. Technical virtuosity and state-of-the-art electronic manipulation combine to produce a startling, atmospheric and highly original CD.

Game Over
Several years ago I met Artem Vassiliev, a Russian composer who writes both acoustic and electronic music. He introduced me to the world of electroacoustic music. Having listened to various electronic compositions I felt that despite some very interesting sounds and textures, an important element was missing. I realised that this "something" was a live human voice or an equivalent - a violin, for example. I commissioned Artem to write a piece for violin and tape for me. The result of our collaboration was Story I, which I first performed in Purcell Room during my Park Lane Group New Year Series recital. Soon after, another Russian composer Alexander Raikhelson wrote a piece for two violins and tape for the Homecoming Festival, of which I am the Co-Director. At that time, this kind of music was beginning to interest me more and more, so I decided to make this album. I contacted Irish composer Ed Bennett, whose "You Are Always Right" for voice and tape had impressed me deeply. He contributed two very contrasting pieces for the programme. Taras Buevsky, yet another Russian composer, wrote Largo Recitare, a dark and philosophical piece of music. Artem Vassiliev wrote the last piece, Game Over, for the fourth Homecoming Festival. I suggested to Artem, that the piece should start as any normal chamber music would and the tape should start only in the Coda, so it would be a complete surprise for the audience. What resulted was one of Artem's "hits", a piece which is still one of his most successful works.
I am most thankful to everybody who invested their time and talent into making of this recording, which has helped me realise a childhood dream, because this is probably as close as I will ever get to being a rock musician!

Firma Melodiya presents a premiere of a unique work of 20th century Russian music - 24 Preludes and Fugues by Vsevolod Zaderatsky.
To say that the composer’s fate was tragic means to say nothing. A composer, pianist and conductor, Zaderatsky went through all circles of Soviet hell - arrests, imprisonments, Gulag, exiles, persecution for “formalism”… However, nothing could crush the man’s mighty craving for creation. He wrote his main work in the period of 1937 to 1939 in a prison camp in Kolyma using telegraph forms as music paper…
A representative of Taneyev’s school, Zaderatsky was perhaps the only composer who ventured upon continuation of his teacher’s polyphonic tradition. Zaderatsky revived Bach’s tradition on his own even before Hindemith and Shostakovich created their cycles of the kind. Here, the timehonoured form is combined with a quite peculiar interpretation of “tonal” thinking. At the same time, the composer’s style is a synthesis of the most significant achievements in the music of the first half of the last century.
Vsevolod Zaderatsky’s works began to draw attention of musicians and the public as late as in the 21st century. The 24 Preludes and Fugues were performed entirely for the first time in 2014 in Moscow. Now they have been put on record by a group of young pianists, prize-winners of international competitions and prominent representatives of performing art of their generation. We are pleased to present Ksenia Bashmet, Yuri Favorin, Nikita Mndoyants, Lukas Geniušas, Andrei Gugnin and Andrei Yaroshinsky.
