Consortium Classicum

Glinka’s Chamber Compositions
Mikhail Glinka, the founder of Russian national opera composition and Russian symphonic music, is known internationally above all for his operas A Life for the Tsar and Ruslan and Lyudmila and his orchestral work Kamarinskaya. His chamber oeuvre is little known outside Russia and – apart from piano music and songs with piano – is limited to a few works. The complete edition of Glinka’s works edited in the Soviet Union contains a mere eight chamber compositions. The form of Glinka’s Septet is modelled on the symphonies of Viennese classicism; for its themes, however, he draws on the folk melodies with which he had been familiar since his childhood, thereby combining Western tradition with Russian melodic designs. His Trio pathétique and the Serenata, distinguished by great virtuosity and colour, are played without breaks between the four movements. The Three Russian Songs heard on the present recording were curated and arranged for piano trio by the composer Eduard Hermann during the 1880s.
