                 Classical CD of the week
“It is a terrific piece, and this fine performance does it proud.”
 

Geoffrey Norris
 

The Telegraph

“ Sergei Taneyev’s At the Reading of a Psalm is an overlooked masterpiece of the Russian music literature. I am happy PentaTone shared my dream of recording this great cantata, and I hope that our disc will bring it the recognition which it well deserves.”

Mikhail Pletnev


“... for the musically adventurous, and those who enjoy purely sonic audiophile delights of surround-sound effects, this CD is top-drawer”.

Gary Lemco


“A performance that does full justice to deeply-felt music”

John Warrack

Gramophone

“This marvelous Cantata – Taneyev’s swan song – proves that he was the most important Russian contrapuntist, with an extremely organised control of the form and results of almost bizarre mystic beauty. Mikhail Pletnev conducts his own in 1990 established orchestra a mixed and a boys choir and a quarted of soloists in a wonderful dark Slavic perfomance”.

Jan van Laar

“ A performance that does full justice to deeply-felt music”.

John Warrack

Gramophone

“While the engineering is excellent in stereo, in surround sound the orchestra and chorus acquire a dimension of massiveness due to hall reverberance entirely appropriate to the performance of such a piece in a concert venue. It’s impressive in its own right, especially at the powerful conclusions of the first and third movements. With excellent liner notes and texts in English and transliterated Russian, I can highly recommend this release.”

Barry Brenesal

Fanfare

“It is a terrific piece, and this fine performance does it proud.”

Geoffrey Norris

The Telegraph

“Without question, this is one of the finest, most realistic choral/orchestral recordings to be heard, particularly the realistic, natural sound of the large chorus which, even at high volume, doesn’t blast. This is a handsome production with complete text in Russian, English, German and French. Highly recommended!"
