Russian Film Music VII

   ...of the many alluring tracks we should single out just a few for mention here. Khachaturian's "Waltz" from "Masquerade" (1944) is full of high spirited swagger. Tariverdiev's lovely "Waltz" from "17 Moments of Spring" (1973) is a most gentle and atmospheric piece, and Shostakovich's "Fuga" from "Golden Mountain" (1931) is a very exciting mix of heroic organ fanfares and galloping rhythms with sardonic touches. Another Shostakovich score is prominent  – the lovely, fascinating, and dreamily romantic  "Forever in Paris & Versailles" from "New Babylon" (1928)

Welcome to the world of Russian Film Music.

Portraying some of the most moving and thrilling music, the magnificent Russian Film Music "speaks" for itself.

"...some of the music is well known but the majority will probably be new to many ears. One should add here that these are idiosyncratic, but thoroughly authentic sounding Russian performances".

The Soviet period saw a vast production of mainly propaganda films, but in between there were films released without political overtones - some on historical themes. The sound tracks of which some scores no longer exist, were usually recorded by un-named studio ensembles and the sound quality was not always the best. However, since most of this music is unlikely to be known beyond Russia, it must be a secondary consideration and emphasis should instead be on the choice of the music.

Russian Film Music I and II were released in 2000 and 2003. Recorded with the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Konstantin Krimets (RFM I) and Sergei Skripka (RFM II), the CD's received 5 star reviews like: "...here are a wonderful collection of Russian Film Music – crisp, first class performances of melodic music in excellent sound. "Every one of the tracks is a gem".
