Slava Kazykin, Ludmila Zaitseva. Quasi una Fantasia. /digi-pack/.
Even though the clarinet was invented in 1690, its real birth took place in the 19th century. As a result of lots of transformations and improvements, it turned into what we know it today: wide range, richness of timbre and great technical opportunities. Intrigued by all of these qualities, quite a lot of composers appeared interested in the instrument, which resulted in that the best-known pieces for the clarinet were composed in the 19th century.

(information from the release's polygraph)

This CD is the result of a work on the 19th century's Western Europa music, under the artistic directorship of one of the best French clarinettists, Slava Kazykin's professor at the Musical Conservatory of Nantes (1995-1998), Jacques Dambrine. The disc reunites original works, which became traditional repertory of clarinet, such as: "Introduction, theme and variations" as well as "Fantasy" for clarinet and piano by G. Rossini, and "Fantasy on the themes of Rigoletto" by Verdi/Bassi. One can also find in there some adaptations made by Slava Kazykin on pieces like the "Gypsy Airs" by P. Sarasate using traditional techniques of the gypsy music, "Moto perpetuo" by N. Paganini with the process of circular breathing, and to finish two pieces for amusement - "Hungarian Dance n5" by J. Brahms and the "Flight of the bumblebee" by N. Rimsky-Korsakov, where clarinet and piano play in unison. (information from the official press-release)

In our turn, let us remind you that our visitors have already had the opportunity to hear the clarinet of Vyacheslav Kazykin in composition of the Inter-quartet "Clarinetissimo!", in the album "Bachiazzola" there music composed by him even sounds. However, this time exclusively classics. Diverse here you will find both deep pieces and entertaining ones. And the thing that unites them is the standards of the performers' virtuosity and you will find it here, indeed. It is not by chance that the duet Kazykin-Zaytseva, which was formed as long ago as in 1986, has been existing until now disregarding the fact (and probably due to the fact) that the both musicians in parallel take part in other projects as well. It seems to us that creative unions can be so long-term only provided permanent mutual growth of the participants. And the mastery of the performance represented here seems to us a great proof in favor of such thought.

State chamber ensemble "Kyiv Soloists". From Romantic Times. Kyiv Soloists Play.

All three composers Grieg, Sibelius and Mendelssohn were wonderful at orchestration and that is why they often adapted their choral and chamber music for orchestra. This debut album from the "Kyiv Soloists Play" series is in a way a true anthology of orchestra transcription.

Philharmonic Orchestra of Luhansk, Choir of Shevtchenko Universitat Luhansk "Viva". Salzsymphonie. (Salt Symphony)

Why "Salt Symphony"? Because this record was made in spring 2006, during the already third festival of classic music, which takes place in a Donbas town of Soledar. Actually, the concerts took place not in the town, but in a salt cave, where they used to extract rock-salt.

Quartet "Rasumovsky". Masterpieces of the Viennese Classics.

Even the very name of a composer, I think, should not influence attitude to music. The thing is not the authority, but in beauty either you feel it, or play another disk. However, I have the suspicion that, having heard performance by the "Rozumovsky" quartet, you will not want to change the disk that soon.

Pearls of Classical Music. Golden Collection.

"Pochayna" choral chapel, Kyiv Camerata. Luigi Cherubini. Requiem.

The disc you see in front of you is unique, because before this work of the choir Pochaina appeared for the first time, "Requiem" composed by Luigi Cherubini had never been performed in Ukraine accompanied by a symphony orchestra.
