Editorial Reviews

With his prolific inspiration, Robert Schumann, the archetypical romantic composer, touched upon all the musical genres of his time. This disc is their most enterprising so far, and features Bashmet as violist and violinist as well as director. Tan Dun is best-known for "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". Takemitsu is Japan's best-known composer.

The cornerstone that distinguishes and separates both western music oriental conception, is the contemplative ecstasy.

Three distinguished composers enhance this extraordinary album. Tan Dun, with the world premiere of his Concerto for pipa, is of the three, the most closely related to the ancestral roots of being Japanese. Four movements outlined and defined this work, has fiercely nationalist.

Toru Takemitsu is the most representative and recognized worldwide for its contribution to the films of Kurosawa (Ran), Kobayashi (Kwaidan) or Teshigahara (The face of another). His work Nostalgia for violin is basically, a musical cell on which multiple collateral branches emerge. Three additional scores make up the rest of the album.

Finally, Hayashi's Elegy for Viola is perhaps, the most approximates a state of meditative stillness, suspended tempo allows the soloist entering a cosmic introspection , the orchestra maintains accompanying dialogue and to draw like a trail of timbres and sound melodious raptures distinctly elegiac.

The Moscow Soloists and Yuri Bashmet do an admirable and tenacious effort to disseminate and raise awareness of the immense legacy of these three incredibly talented composers.

Do not forget to buy this album. Absolutely rewarding.
