Valentin Silvestrov: Musical dedication to Arvo Pärt e.a.

img  Tobias

It is not the first open allusion to Bondarenko, who championed Valentin Silvestrov’s music in public and is held to be an important influence on its development. In fact, “Requiem for Larissa” is even more outspoken than “Der Bote”. And yet, it is the most immediate one, composed the same year. Still, “Bagatellen und Serenaden” is not a statement of sadness and despair. Quite on the contrary, fans of Valentin Silvestrov will he glad to see his spirits reawakened after it seemed he would never again score a single note after finishing the requiem. With most compositions dating back to as recently as 2002, this is not only a comprehensive portrait of Silvestrov  - it is also a contemporary document of his activities.
