Talks on Schnittke. Part 2

The second episode of Modern Audience Laboratory Online is live. Musicologist Anna Fefelova joins musicAeterna’s chief chorus master Vitaliy Polonsky to discuss the score of Alfred Schnittke’s Choir Concerto.

You will learn about the purpose of the bell rhythm in the piece, the way Schnittke managed to achieve a cathedral-like sound even inside a concert hall, the word the composer added to Grigor Narekatsi’s lyrics, and the other things one can hear in the Choir Concerto.
