Valentin Silvestrov: Silent Songs

£39.99

Released: 7th April 2023. Nearly twenty years have passed since Helene Grimaud first encountered Valentin Silvestrov's 'Silent Songs', and finally she has found a partner to perform these songs with in the sensational young baritone Konstantin Krimmel. The present selection was recorded at a concert in the Turbine Hall on the Stienitzsee just outside Berlin in the summer of 2022, and it was on this occasion that pianist and composer met for the first time. The list of Russian classics, Pushkin, Lermontov, Tyutchev, Baratynsky, Zhukovsky, Yesenin and Mandelstam, is complemented by the Ukrainian poet Shevchenko (in Ukrainian) as well as Silvestrov's beloved English Romantics Keats and Shelley (in Russian translation). The voices of these very different poets here blend together into a new unity, a 'harmony of mysterious power' as a line from the Baratynsky poem by that opens Silent Songs has it.
