Lost Highway is a composition that decidedly lives from the transformation of physical spaces, diverse inner and outer spaces, into sound spaces. In performance, this is achieved through various, three-dimensional sound projections, which surround the audience with playing, live-electronics, and virtual acoustics, resulting in different experiential relationships from within and without, close by, and from a distance. The illustrations of these sound spaces and notes naturally are only an attempt to approach the experience in the theater. Fortunately, the possibilities of surround-techniques have come to our aid, which envelop the listener with alternating, overlaying sound-strata. Thus, the present production was intended to be mixed for 5.1 surround. (Olga Neuwirth)

Includes booklet with texts by Stefan Drees, Robert Höldrich, David Lynch, Olga Neuwirth and Slavoj Zizek

Choir & Orchestra of the Moscow State, Gennady Provatorov

It is hard to name another opera with a fate as complicated and dramatic as that of its heroine. Shostakovich came up with the idea of composing an opera based on Nikolai Leskov’s novel Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk District, perhaps the most outright and cruel work of the Russian classical literature, in the early 1930s. Finished in 1932, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk District (as the opera was originally titled) was staged two years later in Leningrad and then in Moscow caused a heated controversy.

However, the opera was condemned after Stalin saw it. “A mess instead of music” - that was a title of a scathing article in the Pravda in January 1936. It marked the beginning of unfounded criticism at Shostakovich for “formalism”, while Lady Macbeth was banned from the stage. The ban was lifted as late as in the early 1960s when Shostakovich had realized the second edition of the opera under the name of Katerina Izmailova. The opera was staged in Moscow and later it took the place it deserved in Russian and foreign theatres. Melodiya presents a historically first recording of Shostakovich’s opera made at the Moscow Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre in 1964 soon after the premiere of the second edition. The premiere was conducted by a young maestro Gennady Provatorov.

In 1966, the recording was given a Grand Prix du Disquein France.

All-Union Radio Choir, All-Union Symphony Orchestra, Mikhail Zhukov


Firma Melodiya presents a recording of one of Sergey Prokofiev’s least frequently performed operas, Semyon Kotko. It was the first opera Prokofiev composed after he returned to the Soviet Union. It took him a long time to find a source for the plot. “I wanted to have living people with their passions, love, hate, joy and sorrow naturally ensuing from the new conditions”, the composer remembered. Prokofiev eventually chose a novel titled “I, Son of Working People” by Valentin Katayev who agreed to rework it into an opera libretto. Vsevolod Meyerhold, a director, old friend and companion, was supposed to stage the new opera but he fell victim to the Stalinist terror.

The opera was premiered in 1940 in Moscow and, as was the case with other outstanding works of that time, was a great success with the public and severely criticized ‘from above’. Even today, bright and figurative music of Semyon Kotko, with its genuinely Gogol-esque humour and genre scenes from everyday life of a Ukrainian village, neat descriptions of the characters, passionate dramatism and monumental chorus scenes, cannot leave a keen listener indifferent.

The opera Semyon Kotko was recorded in 1960 by soloists of the Moscow opera theatres and the All-Union Radio Choir and Orchestra conducted by Mikhail Zhukov. This remarkable musician was taught by Nikolai Golovanov and Konstantin Stanislavsky. The latter acknowledged Zhukov as an “exemplary music director who was able to decrypt the life of human spirit hidden in the score and explain it to an actor”. Zhukov conducted at the premiere of Semyon Kotko at the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre, and its recording became the conductor’s last work.

It took Borodin nineteen years to compose this opera based on the old Russian epic poem The Tale of Igor’s Campaign and also incorporating material from other sources. Eternally busy, the author combined composing with a chair in chemistry and active social life and never finished the work.

Prince Igor reached us thanks to the effort of the composer’s friends Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov who managed to complete Borodin’s masterpiece.
