ТРИ ОДЫ - Олимпийская кантата

All music composed & arranged by Edward Artemiev.

Mastered by Boris Samoilov at "Electroshock Records" studio in February 2002.

Produced by Artemiy Artemiev.


Leave it to the Russian label Electroshock to release this album without the tiniest liner note explaining what it contains. Even those of have heard the previous collections of music by Edward Artemiev (still best known for his soundtracks to Tarkovsky's classic films Solaris and Stalker) will be at odds figuring out what this bombastic piece of symphonic rock is. "Ode to the Herald of Good," the first (and longest) of these Three odes, was written for the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games. It is structured in seven parts and calls for an array of synthesizers (performed by Artemiev), a lead singer (Gennadiy Trofimov), a rock group (Boomerang), a classical chamber ensemble (Melody), an orchestra, and three different choirs. It sounds like one of Rick Wakeman's pompous mid-'70s extravaganzas, but written by a keyboardist more fond of Tangerine Dream. The lyrics, sung by the classically trained Trofimov, are translations of writings by Pierre De Coubertin. The piece has all the qualities and flaws of such grandiose undertakings - including highly compressed sound messing things up whenever the intensity (or pomposity) level rises. Those looking for more of Artemiev's delicate electronic music will be disappointed. The CD is rounded up by two more odes (dates unspecified). "Phantom From Mongolia" is a beautiful piece blending Mongolian themes (female singer uncredited) with more "typical" electronics. "There & Here" is a smoochy orchestral musical-type piece (think Andrew Lloyd Webber).
