Russia Cast Adrift

Private Philharmonic Triumph

Alexey Sioumak's version (b. 1976)
for soloist and chamber ensemble (2022)

Elena Morozova – reciter

Praktika Chamber Ensemble:

Olga Vlasova – conductor, music director,
Daria Morozova – flute,

Tamara Zhukova – double bass,
Nadezhda Reutova – accordion,
Natalia Sokolovskaya – piano,
Alexander Tynyanskikh, Praskovia Tynyanskikh – percussion

The vocal cycle "Russia Cast Adrift" is one of Sviridov's most significant music works composed to the poems by Sergei Yesenin. The selection of texts for the cycle revealed to the listeners unfamiliar Yesenin — a mystic, a religious thinker. Upon Yesenin's lines, Sviridov wrote his own poem about Russia with a deep philosophical basis, a poetic-archaic sound and a cut-through movement from landscape lyrics through dramatic collisions to the anthemic finale.

Sviridov conceived the cycle "Russia Cast Adrift" as a symphonic opus and insisted on the genre definition of "poem", but he never got the chance to do the orchestration. This task was completed by one of the leading composers of the 40-year-old generation Alexey Sioumak, who rearranged Sviridov's cycle for the chamber ensemble.

"Metamorphosen", a symphonic study for 23 solo strings, TrV 290, AV 142 (1945)

Symphony No. 6, "Pathétique", B minor, Op. 74 (1893)

MusicAeterna Orchestra

Conductor — Teodor Currentzis


The musicAeterna Orchestra conducted by Teodor Currentzis will perform two compositions considered the pinnacle of the symphonic tragedy genre at the opening of the Diaghilev Festival 2022.

Richard Strauss was composing the symphonic etude "Metamorphosen" in the last months of World War II and finished it in April 1945. The experience of living through a catastrophe gave impetus for the birth of one of the most exquisite symphonic adagios. "Perhaps, Strauss lived until 85 years solely to create this magnificent thing," the French critic Roland-Manuel would later write. Using centuries-old rhetorical means of expressing grief, weaving motifs in a masterful, continuously changing counterpoint, Strauss composed an elegy for the death of the former world.

Tchaikovsky in his Symphony No. 6 paves the way to the future, to the acute expression of musical psychodramas of the 20th century. Here the music's emotional charge reaches an unprecedented level. The extreme imaginative and dynamic contrasts that bewildered the first listeners still retain a shocking power of impact and inevitably throw the audience off balan.

Perm Philarmonic Organ Hall

The programme includes:

Arnold Schönberg (1874–1951)
String sextet Verklärte Nacht / Enlightened Night, ор. 4 (1899)

Franz Schubert (1797–1828)
String quartet № 14 Der Tod und das Mädchen / Death and the Maiden, D 810 (1824)

Performers – the soloists of the musicAeterna orchestra:
Dmitry Borodin, first violin,
Ivan Subbotkin, second violin,
Grigory Chekmarev, first viola,
Dinara Muratova, second viola (viola in Schubert's quartet),
Vladimir Slovachevsky, first cello (cello in Schubert's quartet),
Maxim Akchurin, second cello


The programme by the musicAeterna orchestra soloists combines two famous chamber ensemble compositions, one of which opens, and the other closes the era of Romanticism in music. Schubert's string quartet "Death and the Maiden" lets poetry into the formerly strict classicist genre of pure music, whereas Schönberg with his string sextet "Enlightened Night" sums up the late Romantic style and introduces "neologisms" into it which later would lead to the birth of the new, atonal music. Both masterpieces have hidden literary programmes that clarify while at the same time obscure their complex content.
