After the success of his first album, devoted to Locatelli’s 24 ‘Caprices for solo violin’, Gabriel Tchalik takes us to Russia in the second half of the 20th century, following in the footsteps of Boris Tishchenko (1939-2010).This album features the world premiere recordings of Tishchenko’s complete works for violin. To underscore this event, Gabriel Tchalik wanted to bring together with this album three outstanding personalities from the intellectual and artistic world of this post-Stalin era: a composer, a painter and a writer, each of whom, in his own way, depicted Soviet reality of the time. Instigator of Moscow’s famous so-called ‘Bulldozer Exhibition’, repressed in 1974 by the regime, Oscar Rabin is a painter now internationally known; 12 of his unpublished drawings, dating from the 1950s and ’60s, are thus presented in this new album conceived as an art object. Drawing their inspiration from the same Soviet reality and attesting to the ephemeral artistic effervescence that occurred at the moment of the Thaw, they closely echo the music of Tishchenko. So it is with the text by Nicolas Bokov, a dissident writer forced into exile by the same regime. ‘Tchalik is dramatic as well as heartfelt and even poetic, shaping every phrase with exquisite care and awesome atmosphere.’ Remy Franck / Pizzicato Magazine
