Description: The Preludes are a 1984 literal transcription of a 1965 vocal cycle suppresed due to its Jewish poet, Joseph Brodsky. The balance of the disc (44 minutes) are suites of music for radio plays of tales by Hans Christian Andersen which date from 1954-58. In 10, 10 and 19 sections, these are trenchant, witty, sparkling, robust little pieces which show a completely new side of this composer and which were only rediscovered in 2003. The notes provide detailed, track by track summaries of the action which the music depicts. Musica Viva Chamber Orchestra; Kirill Ershov.
