Sergei Taneyev (1856-1915): Po prochtenii Psalma (At the Reading of a Psalm - Cantata No.2, Op.36)


Russian National Orchestra / Mikhail Pletnev

St. Petersburg Cappella Choir Vladislav Chernushenko

“(This) is an overlooked masterpiece of the Russian music literature … and I hope our disc will bring the recognition which it well deserves.” (Mikhail Pletnev)

“Psalm 50 made a deep impression on Alexey Khomyakov, whose 1856 poem develops the idea that outward forms of religion are as nothing beside truth and brotherly love …(his) poem inspired Taneyev … a summation of Taneyev’s life and work … (bears) comparison with Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, especially use of fugues …a compelling piece which Pletnev does well to clarify so successfully …includes a fine solo warmly sung by Marianna Tarassova.” (Gramophone)
