Radio station “Orpheus” and PJSC “Unipro” are presenting the next stage of the multi-media project “Russian Composers’ Heritage Revival. Unknown Mossolov.” It is not a secret that today musical heritage of a lot of Russian composers is unfairly forgotten. Moreover, part of it is irrevocably lost. The tasks of the project are to make that lost music sound again, to show how rich and varied indeed is Russian musical heritage, to restore historical justice and to incorporate the musical pieces which have never been performed into the modern cultural context.
Since 2014 radio station “Orpheus” and PJSC “Unipro” have been jointly implementing the multimedia project “Russian Composers’ Heritage Revival”. The project is aimed at restoration of the scores and making records of some Russian composers’ works which have been undeservedly forgotten.
Radio station “Orpheus” jointly with PJSC “Unipro” keeps working on the multimedia project “Russian Composers’ Heritage Revival”. Our today’s concert is aimed at discovering new aspects of the creative heritage of the great conductor Nikolai Golovanov by opening to our listeners the unknown pages of his composing activity in the genres of romance and song.
The fact that this multimedia project appeared at radio “Orpheus” is quite justified, and not only because “Orpheus” is the only classical music radio station in Russia. “Orpheus” has a unique score library which it inherited from “Gosteleradio” of the USSR. There are legends about the riches of this library - some musicians even compare it with the library which belonged to Ivan the Terrible. The staff of “Orpheus” day-dreamt about systematic restoration of the score rarities, as well as performing and recording forgotten and unknown musical pieces.
