Camerata Tchaikovsky - Russian Colours

Camerata Tchaikovsky

Russian Colours

Release date: July 17, 2020
Following the huge success of their debut album on Orchid Classics, Yuri Zhislin and Camerata Tchaikovsky return with a sumptuous programme of Russian delights, presented here in Orchids first ever vinyl release. The programme boasts richly Romantic works by composers from the different musical schools of thought blossoming in 19th-century and early 20th-century Russia. Tchaikovsky was much influenced by German music, but also drew upon folk styles closer to home, as in his moving Andante cantabile from his String Quartet No. 1. Both Rachmaninoff and Arensky were deeply influenced by Tchaikovsky. Rachmaninoffs famous Vocalise is a beautiful song without words, and Arenskys Variations on a Theme by Tchaikovsky are a graceful tribute to his hero. All works on the recording but the Arensky piece have been specially arranged by Yuri Zhislin, including a wonderful new transcription of Glazunovs concerto for alto saxophone, made for viola and string orchestra. Camerata Tchaikovskys debut on Orchid met with considerable acclaim: Their richly confident playing is startlingly good: taut, precise and immaculately phrased The Guardian.
