Очень рекомендую данный шедевр! При первом прослушивании меня на втором треке сразу кинуло вдрожь и подкатился к горлу комок. Комок боли, страданий, бездны ... Да и стихи Кобзаря Шевченка понимаются по другому после исполнения хором (если не считать великого Гмирю ...). Бездна и горе заставляют задуматься о насущном, жизненном, о том, на что не обращаем внимания в ритме быстротечной жизни ...

Ukrainian Valentin Silvestrov is acknowledged by his fellow composers as an artist of unique expressive power, creating at the highest level. The late Alfred Schnittke once said that 'Silvestrov is the greatest composer of our generation', a sentiment recently echoed by Arvo Part: 'Silvestrov is one of the greatest composers of our time'. This is the composer's most deeply personal work, the Requiem for Larissa, written in memory of his wife who died suddenly in 1996.

Silvestrov follows the requiem tradition of setting the Latin Mass for the Dead, but uses the text only in shards and fragments, conveying an incoherent, shocked grief. By the fourth movement there is a hint of consolation as the composer sets words by 19th century Ukrainian national poet Taras Schevchenko… and the music, having worked through the deepest, darkest emotions, concludes in a spirit of hopefulness.
