lyrics

Alexej Aigui about his piano piece „Razumovsky“:

„Today, Russian connection may be about polonium and the Novichok agent; 200 years ago it was reflected way less brutally, in the Russian spirit of one of the best quartets by Beethoven.

Razumovsky is an homage to an important person in the composer’s life, to the count Andrey Razumovsky, thanks to whom three quartets op.59 were created. Fifth and Sixth Symphonies were dedicated to Razumovsky, too. In my music piece, I used a few themes from part 3 of the opus 59 quartet. There are no Russian themes, unlike in other parts of the piece, but the music of this part of the quartet is pierced with authentic Russian melancholy and tragedy.“
