Dmitri Kabalevsky’s music can be flippant, dramatic, ruminative or ‘functional’; it can also be rhythmically and texturally complex (parts of the Second Quartet presented on this CD), or tuneful and primary-coloured (Third Piano Concerto and The Comedians ballet). And yet Kabalevsky has remained, at least for many Western listeners, something of a musical side-liner, a sort of soft-core Shostakovich whose very amiability vitiates against a more ‘serious’ reputation. However, his output was surprisingly wide-ranging and Olympia’s valuable series devoted to it—of which this is the eighth volume—allows us access to such varied works as the Requiem, the opera Colas Breugnon, the piano music and concertos.
The two string quartets are revealing in that they are totally unlike each other, the First (1923), a confident early essay (the work of an enthusiastic 19-year-old), often reminiscent of Ravel but unmistakably Russian in character. The scherzo recalls the world of Stravinsky’s Petrushka, whilst the Andante presents a familiar national brand of melancholy as expressed by a sympathetic but as yet rather undistinguished voice. The equally well-crafted Second Quartet (1945) is both more ambitious and more memorable, with abundant dramatic incidents and a tense but muted Scherzando. Shostakovich and Prokofiev are obvious influences, although the voice is by now quite distinctive. Being very much a product of its time, Kabalevsky’s Second String Quartet functions well within one-time Soviet stylistic strictures; but it still has plenty to say, and could sit quite comfortably among other works of the period.
The young Glazunov Quartet is a highly proficient ensemble and Olympia’s 1993 recording is wholly adequate, save for the odd conspicuous edit (such as the one that precedes the final chord of the Second Quartet’s first movement). Interesting and attractive repertoire; nicely played and comprehensively annotated.’
