Leonard Slatkin, Orchestra Of St. Lukes + Vocalists - Kastalsky: Requiem For Fallen Brothers

Alexander Kastalsky was a student of Tchaikovsky and a mentor to Rachmaninov, becoming director of the Moscow Synodal School until the Bolshevik regime banned all sacred music, including his composition the extraordinary Requiem For Fallen Brothers which consequently lay forgotten for over a century. The Requiem is a rich and varied mosaic that honors those who perished in World War I, poignantly combining Orthodox and Gregorian chant with hymns from the allied nations, even including Rock Of Ages. It’s an unprecedented and peerless monument to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. This is a world premiere recording.
