The composer's Russia Adrift is becoming something of a classic outside his native homeland. I was delighted to come across this recording of an arrangement for mezzo-soprano and orchestra; it's just as powerful as the original version. In addition, we have a beautiful three-movement 'small cantata' to words by Pasternak, Smeg idyot, from 1965, in which the choir's show their mettle, and from Music for Small Orchestra, from a year earlier, a work that undoubtedly has its own strength of character. This is an important addition to the ever-increasing Sviridov discography.
