For the 85th anniversary of Alfred Schnittke, Melodiya releases an album with recordings that have not previously been released on CD. The collection presents Schnittke’s works in various genres. The Dedication to Stravinsky, Prokofiev and Shostakovich for piano six hands, the Second Sonata for violin, the piano and violin concertos, and Symphony No. 5 are performed by outstanding musicians – Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Viktoria Postnikova, Alexander Bakhchiyev, Liana Isakadze, Vladimir Skanavi, Eliso Virsaladze, The Borodin Quartet, Vladimir Krainev, Gidon Kremer, Dmitri Kitayenko, the symphony orchestras of the Ministry of Culture, the Moscow Conservatory, and the Moscow State Philharmonic Society. Even in the most severe years of persecution and loneliness, Schnittke's music found its performers. Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Dmitri Kitayenko, Vladimir Spivakov, Gidon Kremer, Yuri Bashmet, Vladimir Krainev, Eliso Virsaladze, and The Borodin Quartet are the outstanding musicians who were open to novelties and felt that special, poetic power emanating from this music.
