Denisov Prelude et Air for Flute and Piano


Edison Denisov

Denisov, born on April 6, 1929, was a prominent figure in 20th-century Russian music. After initially studying mathematics, he pursued a career in composition at the Moscow Conservatory. Denisov’s musical style was deeply influenced by his background in exact sciences, leading him to view music as an art of logical thought. His cantata “Le Soleil des Incas” (1965) gained international recognition with performances in Darmstadt and Paris under the direction of Bruno Maderna.

Despite encountering obstacles and enduring persecution in his native country, Denisov defiantly expressed his musical genius through compositions that celebrated Russian tradition and culture. His works exuded a mastery of intricate melodic lines, evoking the spirit of Russian folk songs. Additionally, Denisov played a vital role in the Soviet avant-garde movement and forged meaningful collaborations with esteemed musicians and conductors, cementing his legacy as an influential figure in the world of music.

Alongside his remarkable career as a composer, Denisov dedicated almost four decades to teaching orchestration and composition at the Moscow Conservatory. Edison Denisov passed away on November 24, 1996, leaving behind a vast and diverse repertoire of over 140 compositions that encompassed various genres and displayed his evolving style from avant-garde to delicate lyricism.
