Melodiya presents an album of works for bassoon by West European composers performed by Sergei Krasavin.

An Honoured Artist of Russia, professor of the Gnessins Russian Academy of Music and prize-winner of the international competitions in Prague, Budapest and Munich, Sergei Krasavin is a reputable representative of the Russian performing school. After graduation from the Leningrad Conservatory where he studied bassoon under professor Dmitri Yeryomin, he was a soloist of the orchestra of the Leningrad Kirov State Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet (now the Mariinsky Theatre), then a soloist of the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra, the country’s best one. In 1992 to 2006, he played in the French National Orchestra. The bassoonist has also regularly performed as a solo and ensemble musician. A virtuosic technique, expressed emotionality, the sound of rare beauty and an innate sense of form and style are virtues that can be used to describe the musician’s artistic gift.

Sergei Krasavin performs concertos for bassoon and orchestra by Antonio Vivaldi (he was the first composer to “discover” the bassoon as a virtuosic concerto instrument), a rare piece of Mozart - the Sonata for bassoon and cello, and the Sonata for bassoon and piano by Camille Saint-Saëns, the great French master’s last work.

Pianist Alexei Nasedkin and cellist Yuri Loyevsky, two of the leading representatives of Soviet performing art, took part in the recording along with Sergei Krasavin. The Ensemble of Soloists of the USSR State Symphony Orchestra is conducted by maestro Yuri Temirkanov.
