This completes your opening journey into Taneyev's chamber music. There is more to explore my friend!  :)

Cheers, Ray. I look forward to further exciting explorations of this very fine composer.  :)
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.

I had forgot how wonderful John of Damascus is! A sort of mini-Russian-Requiem. Something ancient, solemn and spiritual inhabits this work. Svetlanov is no rushing along the orchestra, that pace does accentuate the noble spirit of this piece.
Music is life, and like it, inextinguishable.

I love the vast surface of silence; and it is my chief delight to break it.

Carl Nielsen
