SILVESTROV: NEW ALBUM, SWISS FESTIVAL


In October, ECM New Series issues Valentin Silvestrov’s “Silent Songs”, his deeply felt cycle for baritone and piano, inspired by classic poetry and performed, with great insight and sensitivity, by Sergey Yakovenko and Ilya Scheps.

This 2-CD set, which also includes the “Four Songs after Osip Mandelstam”, is being released in time for the major festival, with Silvestrov’s music at its centre, held in Basel, Switzerland, from October 17th to November 14th. As previously announced, the festival, which has now been re-titled Culturescapes, spotlights Ukrainian themes - with concerts, symposiums, readings, exhibitions and films.

Many ensembles and soloists will be performing Silvestrov’s music, amongst them Alexei Lubimov, the Rosamunde Quartet, Christoph Poppen with The Basel Chamber Orchestra…
