Name: Boris Tchaikovsky

Boris Tchaikovsky (1925-96) no relation to his better-known namesake was one of the leading Russian composers of the twentieth century. A student of Shebalin, Shostakovich and Myaskovsky at the Moscow Conservatory, Tchaikovsky soon evolved an individual style that steered clear of ideology and fashion. Paradoxically, the apparent simplification of his musical language and growing refinement of its gestures sharpened its emotional impact. Tchaikovsky's music has recently been attracting attention in the West; this CD closes some of the gapes in his growing discography
