Chimes Mvt. II - The Death of a Robber

Quick Overview

Russian composer Valery Gavrilin (b. 1939, Volodga; d. 1999, St. Petersburg) completed his thirteen movement composition Chimes in 1982 and subtitled it Upon Reading V. Shukshyn Miracle Play— Choral Symphony. Throughout the piece one finds the image of an endless road – as a river of life – traveled by generation to generation.

The tenor solo and narrator are pivotal in this dark story-telling second movement while the chorus repeatedly responds with tolling bells and ticking clocks.
