Russian Reflections Disc 7 (2016)

<em>Russian Reflections</em> Disc 7

Disc 7 begins with the piquant pairing of Mozart, the paragon of the Classical period, whose String Quintet in D Major demonstrates his music’s characteristic elegance and beauty, and Prokofiev, the mischievous neoclassicist who channeled the aesthetic of a bygone era to create irrepressibly fresh music. The disc concludes with the magnificent Suite no. 2, op. 17, by Sergei Rachmaninov, Prokofiev’s compatriot who, similarly, looked Janus-like to the tradition of his forebears as his art marched inexorably into the new century.
