Russian composers have never ceased to celebrate their homeland in the form of tales and legends. At the frontiers of the supernatural, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition hymns the eternal truths of childhood and death. In epic fashion, the Medtner sonata mingles a Romantic sweep with the tragic elements of life, whereas Tanevev returns to the origins of the great musical forms with his Prelude and Fugue. David Kadouch, with panache, assumes the role of storyteller in these multiple tales, mythical or imagined, of Holy Russia.
