Valentin Silvestrov -- Symphony No. 5

I really, really like to get myself lost inside Silvestrov's music. I "go" to places that have no location, yet are teeming with surreal and vital significance. There is an austere beauty here......


  1. I love Silvestrov almost more than I love all the rest of them. I sit here listening to his epic 6th symphony, and I want to revisit the wonderful 5th.

    Valentin Silvestrov is for me one of the most fascinating composers... I really love his music! The Silent songs, the Bagatellen, his Requiem for Larissa and of course his master piece: the 5. Symphony

  3. A distinctive composer and, yes, fascinating.
