This third disc on BIS of the orchestral music of Alexander Lokshin opens with Les fleurs du mal, his first acknowledged composition. The piece was also his graduation work after five years of study under the great Nikolai Myaskovsky at the Moscow Conservatory.

Purely instrumental is also the symphonic suite In the Jungle from 1960, compiled from music written for a film based on ‘The Jungle Book’ by Kipling. The Art of Poetry, considered by the composer to be one of his best works, also has a Russian text, a poem by Nikolai Zabolotsky (1903–58).

Gramophone Magazine

August 2010

“Both [The Art of Poetry and the Sinfonietta] are scored for [Lokshin's] favourite combination of voice and chamber ensemble, and both manage to be simultaneously laconic and passionate. Impressive stuff...Performances are faithful and well prepared, and BIS's recording is predictably first-rate.”
