Dmitri Kabalevsky. Artistic Portrait

Selected Works to the 110th Anniversary.
Kabalevsky’s legacy as a composer is extraordinarily extensive – five operas, a ballet, an operetta, thirteen symphonic works, seven instrumental concertos, six oratorios and cantatas, many chamber pieces, numerous piano works for children, young people and established musicians, over a hundred songs, vocal cycles, music for theatre and radio productions, and also music for ten motion pictures.
The most important traits of Kabalevsky’s personality were obvious even in his earliest works – depth and keenness of artistic perception, a feeling of an organic indissoluble connection with life around him.
The recordings featured on this CD set embrace almost the entire vital and creative range of the composer – from his first opus to No. 101 (in all, the composer wrote 103 opuses).
