Description: This will interest more than film-score collectors since Schnittke's Suite in the Old Style was constructed from music from both these films. Made in 1965 and 1970, both films were satires which were banned until the Gorbachev era and are even more raw, in-your-face examples of the composer's polystylism than his "serious" concert works. As one example, you'll hear electric guitars, celeste, prepared pianos and bongos open Sport, Sport, Sport in what sounds like early 60's hipster lounge music. Everyone from Bach and Handel to Chopin, Mahler and Tchaikovsky jumps out at you at some point in these scores, as well as jazz and rock music. Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra; Frank Strobel.
