- From Tchaikovsky to Shostakovich, Russian music has often found its truest voice in elegies. With Glazunov and Tchaikovsky, they are recollections of childhood, or nostalgia for another world. While Rachmaninoff evokes purity in his Vocalise, in his Sonata, Shostakovich intones a swansong, a song of death. In the warm timbre of Gérard Caussé's viola and the generous sonority of Brigitte Engerer's piano, all the melancholy, tenderness and pain of Russia find eloquent expression.
