Description: A brilliant young composer who fought mental illness and spent a year in an institution, Stanchinsky’s compositions come from before (1906-09) and after (1912-14) the peak of his crisis and the later ones develop become so expeimentally polyphonic that some biographers consider him to have been a “Russian Bach”. The notes to the 1994 Marco Polo CD of his music written by Ates Orga have the most colorful appreciation of him: “An experience without precedent at once personal and inquiring - epic, nervy, voluptuous, abrasive, bleak, visionary, sombre, cynical - veiled by memories of Mussorgsky, of Scriabin, of the virtuoso Romantics of the European stage ... a compound of retrospective vocabulary and futuristic language...” This new release is the only Stanchinsky CD available today. Ekaterina Derzhavina (piano).
