Melodiya presents the string duet of brothers Ivan and Mikhail Pochekin.

This is another Melodiya present for music lovers that acquaint us with representatives of musical performing art of the new generation. The young soloists continue a renowned musical dynasty – their father is a famous violin maker, and their mother is a violin teacher. Prize-winners of prestigious international competitions, Ivan and Mikhail Pochekin have appeared at some of the leading venues of Russia, Europe and the world, and been active as both solo and ensemble performers for a decade.

An unusual composition of this album is noteworthy – it is a sort of “two-part concert” where the first part is dedicated to musical classicism and the other to Russian music of the 20th century. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s duo for violin and viola is here next to a rarely performed cycle by Michael Haydn, Joseph Haydn’s younger brother and a friend of the Mozart family. Sergei Prokofiev’s Sonata for two violins concludes the album along with another musical rarity – 12 duos for strings by Reinhold Glière, Prokofiev’s first teacher and a representative of the Sergei Taneyev’s school. His music combines Russian melodiousness and oriental grace with amazing harmonic wealth.

The compositions were recorded by the duet of Ivan and Mikhail Pochekin in 2017 at the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory.
