On hearing the names of Russian composers, perhaps the immortal, grandiose melodies and works such as Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade or Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov spring to mind. Although there is no doubting that this is the better-known face of Russian music, there lies behind this another world, with its own intimate genre, chamber music. The title of the 1841 work by Charles Dickens, The Old Curiosity Shop, would be most apposite for this recital because although the works on the concert repertoire are not top drawer pieces, still they paint a fascinating portrait of late 19th century Russian chamber music. We know from the great Russian symphonies and operas what happens when the world of Russian music meets Western forms; in this concert by Ilona Prunyi, Ádám Banda, László Fenyő and Zsolt Molnár, we can enjoy sampling this Russian flavour in chamber music.
