Russia in the Round

GLINKA Viola Sonata (transcribed for bassoon)
CUI Cinque petits duos Op.56
BORODIN String Quartet No.2 in D 

Composer, critic, soldier and engineer – an acknowledged expert on military fortifications! – César Cui is the least well-known of a group of Russian nationalist composers known as the ‘Mighty Five’ which also included Borodin, Balakirev, Rimsky-Korsakov and Mussorgsky. The duos played here are among the finest pieces in his prolific output and clearly demonstrate the influence of Chopin.

The romantic nature of Borodin’s second String Quartet is displayed in the beautiful Notturno movement – one of many melodies by Borodin that was ‘borrowed’ years later for the Broadway hit musical Kismet.
