Today’s Music by Today’s Composers: André Parfenov.
Today’s episode of Contemporary Music focuses on German-Russian composer André Parfenov, on the occasion of his completion of unfinished works left by Tchaikovsky. In 1887, Tchaikovsky spent six weeks in the German city of Aachen, where he orchestrated his Mozartiana. He also left 16 bars of music in his diary. Parfenov completed this so-called Aachener Walzer. We will hear this waltz and some other recent compositions by Parfenov.
