Image Memory Eternal
A pivotal figure in Russian musical life – he was a student of Tchaikovsky and acclaimed as the founder of a new, national church music – Kastalsky composed a choral-orchestral Requiem for the concert stage, working simultaneously on the a cappella version heard on this recording that could be sung in Russian Orthodox churches. This work and the short sacred pieces that end the programme reveal his masterful use of choral sonority and colour, his weaving of complex polyphonic textures, and his graceful use of ancient chant melodies. World premiere recording.
