After the Grammy-nominated chamber music album ‘leggiero, pesante’, a recording of major compositions for piano and orchestra by the man Alfred Schnittke and Arvo Pärt have both called “one of the greatest composers of our time.” He is certainly one of the most original: Valentin Silvestrov’s uniquely poetic and dreamlike music is played here with uncanny sensitivity and luminosity by Alexei Lubimov, with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra under Dennis Russell Davies.
