THE LAST SUPPER

NIGHT FLOWERS

Lips CD 026
Back to discography

 

Michael Bronner wrote several cycles of “Jewish songs” for various ensembles:  for violin, tuba and chamber orchestra, for chorus and piano, for orchestra with folk instruments ... “Seven Jewish Songs” for accordion and orchestra include both new pieces as well as compositions of other cycles. Seven Jewish life pictures clearly show us different aspects of being, the local way of life in the “village” (any small village in Belarus and Ukraine, home to people of different nationalities): joy and sorrow, memories of the past…. Bronner gives an authentic and accurate description of the typical national coloring of provincial village life and the particular nature of the villagers, usually with his inimitable sense of humor. By the way, in this cycle the composer only uses his own themes.

Three Chorale Preludes” were originally written for organ by Johannes Brahms. The arrangement for cello and accordion comes from V.Tonkha and F. Lips.

The “Tatarian Dance” by Sofia Gubaidulina is a jocular birthday song for the composer and close friend Viktor Suslin. The small effective piece was written for an unusual ensemble: accordion and 2 double basses. What is also unusual is the use of traditional Tatar pentatonic in modern music.

“Moment” by Alexander Cholminov is the last work of one of the greatest Russian composers of the twentieth century. It's just a little sketch, but very convincing: postlude, postscript,
meditation on the threshold of eternity ...

In continuation of her series on “flowers” Tatiana Sergeyeva wrote the charming miniature “Night flowers”. A certain aleatoric in the musical notes gives the piece a spicy touch. When listening we really feel the smell of night flowers, the aroma of night violets…
