BORIS PIGOVAT (b.1953): Holocaust Requiem for Orchestra, Poem of Dawn for Viola and Orchestra.
Catalogue Number: 06Q010
Description: If you missed the live recording of Pigovat's powerful, purely instrumental concertante Requiem in August of 2013 (08O083) - or even if you didn't - here is a fine studio recording of this significant, emotionally gripping work at mid-price. The beautiful Poem, with its warm, unhurried unfolding of a depiction of a magnificent sunrise over the sweeping contours of a mythological, Arcadian landscape, strongly contrasts with the requiem, while being recognizably from the same pen. The work is a substantial concertante tone-poem in a lush, full-blooded style reminiscent of the great Russian romantics, a tremendously appealing work. Anna Serova (viola), Croatian Radio and TV Symphony Orchestra; Nicola Guerini.
