The "Western" and "Russian" schools of Russian music in the late 19th century are less clearly defined in the realm of art song, where composers of all stripes drew on the shapes and melodic hues of Russian folk song. An attraction of this release by Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky is the inclusion of Mussorgsky's Songs and Dances of Death in a magnificent original version for voice and piano. Those songs, beginning with their grim lullaby of a death disguised as a babysitter, are indeed darker harmonically as well as thematically than the song sets by Tchaikovsky and Taneyev, the Western-oriented composers. But they still require a certain light touch and an ability to put across a pure tune, both of which Hvorostovsky has in abundance. Performances of these songs as scaled-down opera arias are fatal, but Hvorostovsky's voice, as he enters his sixth decade, has lost none of its liquid, delicate quality, and he performs these songs with sympathy and insight. Combine it all with the precise accompaniment work of Estonian pianist Ivari Ilja and with intimate but not overbearing acoustics from the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, and you have an album worth considering for first-timers in Russian song as well as for Hvorostovsky fans and those simply attracted by his status as one of People magazine's 50 most beautiful people in the world.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

Jordi Savall: Music, life and recording

It was a rainy October night in the Bugey. On October nights, it's always raining in the Bugey. It was around midnight. There were fifty of us, waiting in the cold, the wet and the rapt silence at the Ambronay Festival. All of a sudden, and without a sound, Jordi Savall was there, sopping wet in a white raincoat, like Bogart in Casablanca, holding onto a hard case shaped like a human body. Moving slowly, he drew out not a person but a viola de gamba, which he started tuning and stringing with the greatest care. And then the miracle descended upon the auditorium.
