A pupil of Tchaikovsky, whom he replaced at the Moscow Conservatory, Sergey Taneyev was a virtuoso pianist and a teacher of Scriabin and Rachmaninov. Although as a composer Taneyev is best known today for his four symphonies, he also composed a sizeable body of chamber music, including six String Quartets. These beautifully crafted works are marked by technical assurance at every turn, as well as dramatic inspiration and intense lyricism. The masterly five-movement Quartet No. 1, in fact Taneyev’s Fifth, includes two notable slow movements, while the lighter Quartet No. 3 features a graceful theme with eight variations, alternately playful and contemplative.

A pupil of Tchaikovsky, who called him the ‘Russian Bach’, Sergey Taneyev is best known today for his four symphonies, although he also composed a sizeable body of chamber music, including nine complete String Quartets. Quartet No. 9 is a memorably melodic work, while the beautifully crafted Quartet No. 6, his last completed quartet, is rather more austere, though marked by a playful Jig, and even more masterful in construction.

This is the fifth and final volume of Carpe Diem's highly acclaimed cycle of Taneyev's nine complete string quartets which are notable not only for the composer's famed meticulous craftmanship but for their attractive lyrical sweep. Infused with the spirit of Haydn and Mozart, the harmonically adventurous Eighth Quartet includes a beautiful and romantic Adagio. The Second String Quintet is a monumental work in every sense, standing firmly alongside the later quartets.

As 19th-century Russian composers go, Sergei Taneyev was one of the most interesting but scarcely one of the most famous. Tchaikovsky, Cui, Rimsky-Korsakov, Mussorgsky and Borodin are only a few of those who eclipsed him during his lifetime, and since he lived until 1915 you could also throw in Scriabin and Rachmaninov. Yet as these two string quartets prove, he wrote some very interesting and intense music, although its intensity is increased here by the straight-ahead, no-relaxation-or-pause style of the California String Quartet.

Two chamber masterpieces from nineteenth-century Russia, performed by Piers Lane and the Goldner String Quartet. Taneyev has been known as the ‘Russian Brahms’ and this epithet is particularly apposite when considering his Piano Quintet in G minor, especially as regards both its instrumental writing and its intellectual passion. Composed in 1911, this massive work bids fair for the accolade of the greatest work in the Russian piano-chamber repertoire before Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet of 1940. Only the extravagance of its technical demands can explain its failure to establish itself in the standard repertoire.

Carpe diem – ‘seize the day’ – is one of the oldest pieces of life advice in Western history. But its true spirit has been hijacked by ad men and self-help gurus, reduced to the instant hit of one-click online shopping, or slogans like ‘live in the now’. We need to reclaim it to make sense of our complex, confusing times.

Truly amazing mid 70's French space prog fusion band creating some highly creative and definitely unique sounds. "En Regardant Passer Le Temps" features lots of superb soprano sax with acid laced guitar soloing all sauteed in a slight space jazz setting not unlike elements of GONG and The SOFT MACHINE at times…
