Sergei Taneyev: Music for Chorus - U.S.S.R. Russian Chorus/Aleksander Yurov
KHCD-2014-007FL (STEREO) - Sergei Taneyev: Music for Chorus - U.S.S.R. Russian Chorus/Aleksander Yurov - Sergei Taneyev (1856-1915), the great Russian pianist/composer/theorist, is possibly best known for his chamber and orchestral music in the West. He did, however, compose much choral music, and this collection provides a sample of his genius. Polyphonic mastery and precision of form, combined with dignity and imagery constitute Taneyev's technique in these wonderful works. The U.S.S.R. Russian Chorus sings with great sensitivity and astonishing dynamic range. The transcription is from a late pressing Melodiya/Angel disc. Download includes CD art.
