Dmitry Kabalevsky remains largely forgotten as a composer of socialist-realist music, possibly because of his obsequious, opportunistic engagement in politics which brought him three Stalin Prizes and four Orders of Lenin. When it suited him, he courted the Russian Association of Proletarian Musicians, and later he became a very active member of the Union of Soviet Composers. Mieczyslaw Weinberg was the exact opposite, both politically and musically. He was a life-long victim of the Soviet Union, and while his music is occasionally humorous, it generally reflects the dark side of a genius whose music can be emotionally draining.

In this album, Capriccio has a star line-up of artists for this important chapter in Russian musical history, which features works by two generally forgotten Russian masters whose lives and output could not be more contrasted.
