• Arbiter’s latest release of historical importance follows Russian pioneers who sought to either imitate Western music or excavate native Pagan, Mythic, and Central Asian sources. Performances include lost recordings by Erica Morini, Georg Szell, Alfred Hoehn, Rachmaninoff, Issay Dobrowen, Albert Coates, Michael Zadora, Konstantin Igumnov, Alexander Kamensky, Oskar Fried, Igor Stravinsky himself, and Vladimir Sofronitsky. Sounds and text follow a path that not only overturned the West's musical hegemony but became a risk to a Soviet regime that tried to recast them into obedience under an imposed Socialist Realism.
