Nagrody i rekomendacje
Pizzicato 5
Sergei Prokofiev:
Visions fugitives (arr. Rudolf Barshai)

Alexander Scriabin:
Preludes, Op. 11 (arr. Jouni Kaipainen)

Anton Arensky:
Variations on a Theme by Tchaikovsky, Op. 35a

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky:
Elegy for string orchestra
Composed in Russia between 1884 and 1917, the four works appearing on this disc all do so in some kind of disguise. Prokofievand Scriabin both conceived their respective collections for the piano, and it is later arrangers that have adapted them for string orchestra. Rudolf Barshaitook on Prokofiev’s Visions Fugitives in 1962, selecting 15 of the 20 brief pieces and arranging them for his own ensemble, the Moscow Chamber Orchestra. Scriabin’s Preludes received a similar treatment in 1999 when the Finnish composer Jouni Kaipainen chose 13 from the original 24, rearranging the order they appear in and in some cases transposing them.

As for Anton Arensky (1861 1909), he composed his set of variations as the third movement of a string quartet, taking the theme from a song by Tchaikovsky and letting it undergo a series of transformations. Cheered by the success of the piece, he made his own arrangement for larger forces, a version which remains one of his best-known works. Tchaikovsky’s Elegy, finally, is actually heard here as it was composed, in 1884, but the piece saw the light of day as ‘A Thankful Greeting’ and was renamed ‘Elegy’ only at the time of publication, before making a final reappearance, as part of the composer’s music to Hamlet. The four works are performed by the Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra, one of Finland’s finest ensembles, conducted by its artistic director Sakari Oramo.

Recording: December 2017 at the Snellman Hall, Kokkola, Finland. CD is released in BIS ecopak.
