Firma Melodiya presents a new album of Alexander Lokshin's chamber music, one of the most original representatives of the Russian composition school of the 20th century and unfortunately underrated in his lifetime. A pupil of Nikolai Myaskovsky and a friend of Dmitri Shostakovich Lokshin was a creator of his individual style with an organic blend of symphonic, chamber and vocal genres. Alexander Lokshin's works are performed by some of the most prominent Russian musicians of the previous century: Symphony No. 5 is performed by Rudolf Barshai, a friend and admirer of the composer, and creator of the first Soviet chamber orchestra, and Yan Kratov, a soloist of the Moscow Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Academic Music Theatre; the quintet features Ivan Mozgovenko, a clarinetist and People's Artist of Russia, and the Komitas Quartet, one of the oldest chamber ensembles of this country; and the piano variations are performed by Maria Grinberg.
