National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia, The National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia, The Choir of the Popov Academy of Choral Art, The Boys’ Choir of the Moscow Sveshnikov Choral College, Vladimir Spivakov

Melodiya presents musical works by contemporary Russian composer and clergyman Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev.

The Bishop of Volokolamsk, Vicar to the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, a theologian, enlightener and translator, an author of scientific and popular works, Hilarion also possesses a pronounced composing gift. He began his ecclesiastical service in the 1980s after his study at the composition faculty of the Moscow Conservatory. Hilarion returned to musical activities twenty years later, in the mid 2000s.

Hilarion’s works based on divine texts but intended for concert halls combine centuries-old traditions of Western European church music with Russian church singing and Russian secular classical music refracting them in the light of the musical language of the 21st century.

This set includes pieces in the genre of cantata and oratorio written by Hilarion in 2007 to 2011 – Stabat Mater, A Song of Ascents, a symphony for choir and orchestra, and a large-scale Christmas Oratorio.

The works were recorded in 2011 by the Choir of the Popov Academy of Choral Art, the Boys Choir of the Moscow Sveshnikov Choral College and the National Symphony Orchestra of Russia led by the prominent maestro, violinist and conductor Vladimir Spivakov. The recording also features Hibla Gerzmava, a remarkable singer and prima donna of the world’s leading operatic stages, Nikolai Didenko, an owner of rare basso cantate, and Viktor Shilovsky, a soloist of the Vienna State Opera.

Moscow Virtuosi, Vladimir Spivakov

For the anniversary of maestro Vladimir Spivakov, Firma Melodiya presents a unique, previously unreleased recording of the Moscow Virtuosi chamber orchestra made on 28 December 1988 in the Big Hall of the Moscow Conservatory.

From the first years of their existence, the Moscow Virtuosi, founded by Vladimir Spivakov, lived up to the highest standards of mastery on both domestic and global scales. It was a genuine 'orchestra of soloists' comprising prize-winners of domestic and international competitions, concertmasters of the best orchestras of Moscow many of whom could count on a brilliant solo career.

Although the Virtuosi spent a lot of time in the studio, it is the orchestra’s concert recordings that convey the atmosphere of a living, inspired contact with the audience.

The charitable activities Vladimir Spivakov has been involved in for many years now are evidence of his great human responsiveness, his desire to support talented children and his empathy for people’s suffering. The pre-New Year concert of 1988 was a fundraising event to benefit the Armenian children who suffered in the earthquake.

The concert, comprising music of Johann Sebastian Bach, featured other prominent musicians as well – Mikhail Pletnev, Araxia Davtian, an Honoured Artist of the Armenian SSR, and Bernard Soustrot, a world renowned French trumpeter. However, Adagio from the Easter Oratorio for oboe and orchestra performed instead of an encore by Alexei Utkin, an oboist and future founder of the Hermitage Ensemble, was a genuine climax of the event. The music reflecting upon passions of Christ’s earthly life sounded like a requiem for the tens of thousands of people who were buried alive in Spitak and Leninakan.

National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia, Vladimir Spivakov

A strong voice, a bright dramatic gift, a passionate temperament, creative courage and a precise sense of a role – all these virtues are combined by the name of the unique opera singer Hibla Gerzmava, a People’s Artist of Russia and People’s Artist of the Republic of Abkhazia.

Hibla Gerzmava is an opera singer of a world scale, a remarkable actress and versatile musician. In 1994 she graduated from the Moscow Conservatory where she majored in solo singing under professors Irina Maslennikova and Evgenia Arefieva, and completed her post-graduate course under Maslennikova in 1996.

Since 1995 Hibla has been a soloist of the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre in Moscow, debuting as Musetta in Puccini’s 'La bohème'. The singer’s entry to the theatre signified the first stellar round of her singing career, in many ways thanks to a fruitful creative partnership with director Alexander Titel. That rare creative union gave the stage of the theatre bright operatic roles, such as Adina in Donizetti’s 'L’elisir d’amore', Musetta and Mimi and Puccini’s 'La bohème', Louisa in Prokofiev’s 'Bethrotal in a Monastery', Rosina in Rossini’s 'Il barbiere di Siviglia', Lyudmila in Glinka’s 'Rusland and Lyudmila' and, of course, a poignant and passionate Violetta in Verdi’s 'La traviata'.

The singer has toured with the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Theatre in Korea, the United States and other countries. Today, the Russian prima donna is a guest star of the state opera houses of Vienna, Paris, Rome and Bavaria, Metropolitan Opera and Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

Hibla has collaborated with Moscow Virtuosi led by Vladimir Spivakov, the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia and pianist Daniil Kramer’s jazz trio. She has performed with such prominent Russian and foreign musicians and conductors as Lorin Maazel, Antonio Pappano, Marco Armiliato, Ádám Fischer, Vladimir Spivakov, Valery Gergiev, Alexander Rudin, Mikhail Pletnyov, Vladimir Fedoseyev, Vasily Sinaisky and others.

In 2001, for her Lucia in Donizetti’s 'Lucia di Lammermoor', Hibla Gerzmava was awarded the national theatre prize The Golden Mask and Casta Diva as the Best Singer. She is also an owner of the Moscow Prize in the field of literature and arts (2010) and Triumph Award (2011).

The distinguished violinist and conductor Vladimir Spivakov’s versatile talent has been vividly realized in many spheres of social life. In 1979 he co-founded the Moscow Virtuosi chamber orchestra with a group of musicians who shared his views and became its unchallenged artistic director, conductor and soloist. In 2003, Vladimir Spivakov became an artistic director and principal conductor of the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia he created, and the president of the Moscow International House of Music.

On the initiative of Vladimir Spivakov, Hibla Gerzmava performed on October 14, 2013 in Svetlanov Hall of the Moscow International House of Music, accompanied by the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia. Firma Melodiya presents the program of the concert on this DVD, which included both classic and less known Russian overtures, and arias and scenes from operas by Mozart, Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti and Verdi.

Arsen Sogomonian, a soloist of the of the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre, prize laureate of the Moscow International Competition 'Romansiada', also took part at the concert.
