Description
The composer weaves the polyphony of the poets' voices (Pushkin, Lermontov, Tyutchev, Baratynsky, Yesenin, Mandelstam, Keats, Shelley, and others) into an integral whole, into a mysterious harmony. The hero of the cycle is poetry itself. 'I felt the need to bow to poetry, to wait for the poem to sing itself.' (Valentin Silvestrov)
