Format: Audio CD
This is a re-release of the 1994 Le Chant Du Monde Saison Russe recording. Like the original the booklet contains no sung texts or translations. However most of the song tracks except 12 (13'35 a medieval French text) and 13 (2'00, Three Magi by Alexander Blok) are poems of Lourie's lover Anna Akhmatova which are widely published - "Chotki" (Четки, Rosary beads) and "Golos muzi" (Голос музы, Voice of the Muse). Natalia Gerassimova is joined by a choir for an a cappella version of the final 19'40" cantata of 1919 "V kumirnyu zolotovo sna" (В кумирню золотого сна, In the Sanctuary of a Golden Dream) after texts by Alexander Blok. The title comes from the fourth line of Blok's 1908 poem "Dusha! kogda ustanesh' verit'" ("Душа! Когда устанешь верить" "Soul, when you get tired, believe"). There appears to have also been a "symphonic" version of this cantata conducted in 1920 by Serge Koussevitzky, but here the choir sings alone. The work is interesting enough to hope that another recording - with Blok's full texts and translations, and perhaps Lourie's second 1919 setting of Blok from "Bolotnyi popik" (Болотный попик, The Little Swamp Priest 1905) will one day appear on disc. In the meantime good to have the 1994 recording back in print.
