OUT NOW | VC Artist Fedor Rudin's New Album "Heritage"

Recorded with pianist Boris Kusnezow, the disc features Fedor's grandfather Edison Denisov's complete repertoire for violin and piano alongside pieces by Russian composers Shostakovich, Prokofiev, and Mussorgsky

 

Orchid Classics announced the release of French-Russian violinist and VC Artist Fedor Rudin's new CD, entitled "Heritage."

"The first idea for this album was to do something around the composer Edison Denisov, my grandfather," Fedor told The Violin Channel.

"Boris Kusnezow and I recorded all his repertoire for violin and piano, including works that were never published and remained only as manuscripts. There is even one piece that we found after the actual recording was already done but fortunately, we managed to find a last-minute recording session to have it on the CD as well.

"Because of Denisov’s own connection to France, the second axis of this album relates to the French-Russian traditions of the 20th century: Shostakovich, who was his early mentor and teacher, Prokofiev, whose works my grandfather carefully studied while writing his own violin sonata, and Debussy, whom my grandfather admired among other French impressionists. My grandfather also completed and orchestrated Debussy's opera “Rodrigue et Chimène,” from which I then made a violin and piano arrangement of the prelude and one duo scene.

"Besides the fact that this is such a personal project, since there are so many pieces on the album that were never ever intended to be recorded or performed, we are very curious to see how the listeners will experience this music. The other well-known pieces, for example, Prokofiev's first violin sonata, will appear in a whole new light in the context of Denisov."
