KALINNIKOV, Vasily Sergeyevich - Composers

   Found CDs: 9
 

Composer: KALINNIKOV, Vasily Sergeyevich ((1866-1901))
His/her music:
Kalinnikov wrote several songs and some other vocal works. Many are lost and none are regularly performed. He is best remembered for his orchestral works, which include two symphonies. The most popular is still his first symphony (1895), which received its first performance in 1897. It was often performed in the following years, both in Russia and abroad. Indeed, Alfred Bruneau praised above all other Russian works performed in France in 1900, including works by Tchaikovsky, Glazunov and The Five. In Kalinnikov's second symphony (1897), the influence of Borodin is also noticeable, but this work lacks some of the freshness of his first symphony, especially in the last movement. The same can be said about his symphonic poem Kedr i pal'ma (The cedar and the palm), which was written next.
(Reaction of Julian Thake <julianthake
talk21.com>: I think you underrate "The Cedar and the Palm", which was my introduction to the music of the seriously underrated Kalinnikov and is, for me, a beautifully atmospheric piece. He is a poet more of harmony than of melody and this piece is a fine exemplar of that.)
Sources:
My main source, besides the usual handbooks, was the article by Grigor'yev. The book by Kalinnikov's pupil Paskhalov was not available to me. According to Kiselyov, the 1951 edition is a new book compared with the 1938 edition, containing new material.

His/her life:
(His birth and death dates in the old Russian calender are 25 and 24 January, respectively.)
Vasily Sergeyvich Kalinnikov (1866-1901) was born in Voina in the Oryol District. He studied at the seminary in Oryol and was in charge of the choir at the age of 14. In 1884 he moved to Moscow as a scholarship student at the Philharmonic Society School where he took bassoon and composition lessons from Alexander Il'yinsky. Kalinnikov made his living playing bassoon, violin and timpani in theater orchestras.
After a recommendation by Tchaikovsky in 1892, Kalinnikov was appointed conductor at the Malïy Theater and later the Moscow Italian Theater. In 1894 Kalinnikov wrote his 1st Symphony and between 1895-97 his 2nd. He wrote Incidental Music for Tsar Boris, a play by Alex Tolstoy that opened at the Maliy Theatre in Moscow on Feb 1 1899. In declining health Kalinnikov resigned his positions and moved to the warmth of the South Crimea later in 1899.
Towards the end of Kalinnikov's life, he was assisted by Sergey Rachmaninov who arranged the sale of some of his songs and a piano arrangement of Kalinnikov's 2nd symphony. Kalinnikov died in Yalta Jan 11, 1901.

Introduction: Kalinnikov was the first Russian composer to be known for his orchestral music only (remember that Tchaikovsky wrote most of his works for the theatre!). His first symphony, which has been played by many eminent conductors, is still a popular work.
Life: Kalinnikov came from a poor family and got only some violin lessons in his youth. At the age of fourteen, he gained also experience as conductor of the local school choir. In 1884 he went to Moscow to study at the conservatory, but after a few months he could no longer afford the tuition fee. He eked out a living by playing various instruments in theatre orchestras. Fortunately, he attracted the attention of Semyon Nikolayevitch Kruglikov (1851-1910), a music critic and teacher, whose significance for Russian musical life is not easily overrated. Kruglikov taught him harmony and introduced him to other prominent musicians. Tchaikovsky found him a place as conductor of the Maly theatre in 1892. Kalinnikov also conducted the Moscow Italian theatre, but already the next year he had to resign from all duties because of tuberculosis. To improve his health he went to the Crimea, where he wrote most of his works. The succes of his first symphony, and the recommendation of Sergey Rachmaninov, brought him a cont

Firma Melodiya presents the first complete CD release of the Anthology of Russian Symphonic Music, the most massive project in the world’s history of sound recording!
Evgeny Svetlanov… It is needless to remind what a mark the great musician left in Russian, and even broader, world performing arts. The outstanding pianist and talented composer, he became a legendary conductor who helmed Russia’s main orchestra, the storied Svetlanov’s State Academic Symphony Orchestra, for 35 years. From his early youth upwards Svetlanov was possessed by the idea of rescuing from obscurity little known and forgotten pages of Russian music; his aspiration gradually grew into the idea of the Anthology. He worked on it for about 30 years, and it still appears to be a true heroic feat.
Glinka, Dargomyzhsky, Balakirev, Mussorgsky, Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, Lyadov, Taneyev, Arensky, Kalinnikov, Lyapunov, Medtner - all orchestral works by the Russian composers of the 19th and early 20th centuries were captured on tape by Evgeny Svetlanov and his orchestra.
The first part of the Anthology comprises 55 CDs with works presented in chronological order from Glinka to Lyapunov. The bonus CD includes recordings of Nikolai Medtner’s piano works performed by Svetlanov the pianist. He had a special fondness for the outstanding composer’s music and in many ways contributed to the return of his music into the context of contemporary performing culture.
