Description:
This cd presents the Moscow premiere of probably the most important Semionov's compositions - "Frescos" - the concerto for bayan, chamber orchestra and percussion. The recording was made during the concert of the XVth International Festival "Bayan and Bayanists" in the Concert Hall of the Gnesin's Russian Academy of Music on December 15th, 2004. The concert was performed by the author accormpanied by the Chamber Orchestra of the Academy. The conductor was the Honored Artist Kazakhstan, composer, professor Gnessins RAM, Timur Mynbaev.

The idea to write that concerto appeared a very long time ago. It was during Semionov's work in Rostov Music Pedagogical Institute where he studied composition under professor Anatoly Kusyakov's leadership.

Like all Semionov's music, the concerto has a hidden program. Figurative composition sphere is evoked by multiple artistic impressions, philosophical reflections about God and soul, life and death. Biblical narration, incarnated in the creation of ancient craftsmen of Church-painting and icon-painting inspired the author for musical expression of process of the spritual development of humanity through the Christian idea with the orchestra and solo bayan facilities. The concerto consists of three parts - a set of frescos that are in contrast with character and united by common idea. The orchestra incarnates the objective principles, descending from the nature of human society, and the solo bayan cadences personify the confession of soul, penitence and purgation.

The 1st part - Passacaglia - procession to Calvary
The 2nd part - the icon of God's Mother
The 3rd part - Final, chapter consists of 2 parts: Hell, Ascension and holy day of human soul.
