Cellist Maya Fridman writes of this recent release and her new arrangement of Prokofiev’s The Fiery Angel for cello and piano:

“The idea of this work came to me in December 2014. A few months before that, I started to play with Artem Belogurov. His genius and charisma prompted me to look for a piece, which could develop into an exciting and mystic adventure. I knew what I wanted to find: the depth embracing the light and the dark, a story that could transcend time and language, music itself.

“The prospective of working on this piece thrilled me and at the same time seemed impossible, as this music is a paradox, the essence of which is the union of ecstasy and suffering.

“[Renata’s] burning was an act of symbolic death in which she united with the Angel, through the ecstatic destruction of self. This music requires dissolution to exist and faith to surrender. It is the celebration of the Symbolist’s idea that the material reality is nothing but a distorted echo of another realm.”
