GRAMMY AWARD WINNER! Two of America’s finest a cappella choirs team up for this new recording of Gretchaninoff’s monumental Passion Week, a work composed and premiered in 1912, but which then lay silent for some eighty years before it was revived in the early 1990s in Russia by Valery Polyansky and the Russian State Symphonic Cappella (our cat. no. A001). Recently, the work has begun to attract the attention of non-Russian interpreters as well. In the case of Charles Bruffy, who has already performed a good deal of Russian Orthodox sacred music, and produced an exquisite recording of Rachmaninoff’s Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (our cat. no. A045), he clearly brings a new dimension of interpretive depth to this complex work. In Bruffy’s hands, the choral texture shimmers and breathes, magically expressing the subtle shadings that do justice to Gretchaninoff’s opulent score. This Super-Audio CD is a full 15 minutes longer than its Russian predecessor, and you, the fortunate listener, will treasure every minute of it! Excellent notes and text translations are provided in English, French, and German--V.M.
