Margit Dressel. Orgelreise mit marchenhaftem Klangteppich. Prof. Tchulovsky aus Novosibirsk entlockte Reger-Orgel in Stadtkirche bislang ungehorte Tone

«The organ travel by the fairy sound carpet.
Professor Andrey Chulovskiy got out from Reger organ such sounds, which was unknown before now.


Again a declaration of love to the Reger organ – such was the recital given in Stadtkirche by professor Andrey Chulovskiy. Composer and organist from Novosibirsk who visit Meiningen already for the third time pleased public by own works and such timbres of organ sound which perhaps never has been extracted from the Reger organ. (…)

The Russian composer has presented a premiere. Once he was inspired by Bavarian forest and composed the piece «In Merchenwald valley», which was performed for the first time in Meiningen. The sounding of this piece was like fairy carpet ornamented by hundred artists. …

It stands to reason that Russian organist has pleased public again by his organ fantasy «Thuringia». The forest, rich landscape and Bach – all this is incorporated in optimistic composition abounding by symbols.

Meantime organist is bound for the Netherlands, performing his piece «Flying Dutchman». Not Wagner's mysticism but Chulovskiy's romanticism rather reflects the character of a legend and a melody of the sea.

«Merry old England».
The country house, the drawing room, the palace and the hunting castle - composer could not do without all these attributes of "Merry old England".

Five variations on the theme by Dmitry Bortnjansky -- oustanding composer of the orthodox church music -- were an original musical echo from his native land. Truthfully speaking, sacred music of Scandinavia is more close to Chulovskiy, because he plays the organ (there is no organ in ortodox church). Composer has created expressive preludes on six hymns from the Swedish Psalmen Boken.

Organ travel to Switzerland helped to discover unexpected properties of the instrument. The voices of birds never has been represented in so similar way, as it was demonstrated by playing of Chulovskiy. His piece "Voices of birds» is equal to the works, which was arreared under the skillful pen of Friedrich Schiller; this music sounded like if all feathery singers have gathered on the Rutli meadow.

The grand musical finale of the program was inspired by Italy. For the well-known melody «Santa Lucia» Chulovskiy used a sound of various suitable organ stops, plaiting this voices in a sound carpet. And the streams of the clothing piece -- "Fountain «organo» of villa d'Este" -- spouted so visibly, that it was even possible to distinguish the seething spume and tiny sprays of water in this sounding.

Small daily joys.
Undoubtedly, Andrey Chulovskiy is a talented composer. And he understand this fact and lead his listeners there where Muse of Music has embodied on him her kiss.

A lot of small daily joys which slips often away imperceptibly has been embodied by him into a flexible sounds which was like echo of the distant world...»

«(...) Andrey Chulovskiy open the annual serises of the organ recitals in Muhlhausen.

... Performing famous Toccata and Fugue by Bach, Chulovskiy use the full sounding, but not sharp, not with effect, when public feels that “the ear-drums is cracked”. Playing rhapsodic passages he keeps the discipline of sounds and performs this piece not academically, but on “Bach-suitable” manner. Whether genuine or false: Bach's chorale preludes of the youth period followed then. Chulovskiy place "Aus der Tiefe rufe ich zu dir" side by side with late "Ich rufe zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ". ... Three choral preludes «Wer nur den lieben Gott laesst walten» was the joyful clothing point of Bach complex.

Organist from Nurnberg Johann Pachelbel worked in different churches of Thuringia about 20 years. Brilliant figurations of his compositions demands from organist the ability of virtuoso: the following then Chaconne f-moll has demonstrated Chulovskiy also as a pianist — difficult passages, fullness of sound «evaporated» in rich colorbind of variations... »

«(...) Andrey Chulovskiy is following across the world concert podium as organist and pianist. Professor of music from Novosibirsk fulfils now the tour over the Europe again. This circumstances has brought him to Meiningen, Rohr and Bedheim.

Chulovskiy feels himself especially well in the rich organ landscape of Thuringia. ... About two years ago Chulovskiy already played the recital on the Reger organ of Meiningen Stadtkirche. His admiration of Thuringia has been embodied in his organ fantasia. That is the melodious inspired-joyful piece about forests, mountains and plains. And the voice of small bird also has not been forgotten. (...)

The attraction of this organ recital in Meiningen Stadtkirche based perhaps on the refined world-scale bow to host of house and especially on the interrelation of modern and classical compositions.

The work of his countryman Rodion Shchedrin (1932) remarkable of both original polyphony and sound. «Horisontal and Vertical» (designed by composer as Adagio) has been impressively presented by Chulovskiy like a picture.

... Toccata by Italian composer Umberto Bombardelli sounded cheerfully.

... High point and the conclusion of the recital was based on the performing of the fantasy by Max Reger «Wachet auf! Ruft uns die Stimme». By his interpretation of this well known organ work guest has demonstrated the great skill».

«(...) Siberian follows with confidence along the path of independent musical career. Recently he was the professor of the conservatoire in Novosibirsk and now as the first independent step he set up his own Organ Art Center. ... Guest have a compact schedule (after the recital he departed at once by train), but that is fine that he forgot about timetable playing the Reger-organ.

... After the introduction (Bach's Toccata d-moll and three choral preludes) his own composition followed. «Schweitzer-variations» was appeared like a highest mountain pass on the border between classical proportionality and modernistic novations. Then the Choral fantasy by contemporary composer Hans Rudolph Johner has been performed. For playing well known motive B-A-C-H Chulovskiy used the miscellaneous sound gradations of the instrument and that evoked the especial enthusiasm of listeners.

... Performing fantasy by Max Reger on the choral «Wachet auf ..», organist and instrument was like the united whole phenomenon».

«(...) Russian organist Andrey Chulovskiy -- professor to the academy -- was hearing the last week end at two places in Noord-Holland: Egmond aan Zee and Enkhuizen where virtuosity and quality were the characteristics of the multi-purpose programme that filled fifth summer evening concert in the Zuiderkerk.

Organist opened the concert with a composition of own hand: «Schweitzer-Variations», seven variations on the theme «Discendi Santo Spirito». The original theme kept recognizable face by these seven traditionally set up variations. The good varied choice of stops struck in honour to the organ in the Zuiderkerk. The playing was subdued, if necessary, and became spectacular when required.

The second organ work was of complete an other snit: the " 5 Polyphonic preludes" from the "Polyphonic Notebook" by Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin in the organ transcription by the organist. Modern music can captivate to be well played that was proved by performance of Saturday evening. Thanks to figured registrations and very well developed dynamics the separate parts were listened captivating.

By Bach's preludium and fugue in e-moll the organist completed the concert and also by the interpretation of this superb work the strength and the virtuositeit of musician be proved...»

«The man, who has visited the recital of Chulovskiy, has a happiness; the man, who has not visited it is not happy. The pianist of the world-wide-level played in the Saturday evening in the St.Nicolaj, and it is possible to call this event as a miracle.

The atmosphere around the concert of this Russian was distinguished from that, which take place on some classical concerts, when you obliged to feel the compulsion and to thing: «How long else will be sitting this person near the piano»? But now it was a good case to see the birth of the splendid music, and it is not possible to call this event in another way that a miracle. The pianist created somewhat more that it is possible to make for a men. The musical sounds growing up from the piano one after another sometimes as the stormy squall, or sometimes going one after another with the colossal quickness as a little sea rain drops. Listeners was captivated; they was not only keep a big attention, but felt a total admiration of the Chulovskiy's masterly. (...) The person, who try to find only some blunders on such playing, is really only grumbler».

//«Vechernij Omsk» («Evening Omsk»), 18.06.1979. (Review of the piano recital of Andrey Chulovskiy.)

«The fine concert of classic music was held in one of recent evenings. (...) The pianist has struck the listeners by depth and virtuosity of playing. Fifteen variations by Beethoven (...) have sounded in the performing of the young pianist expressively, originally and technically freely. The roots of imagery of the Fantasia f-moll by Shopin is in the French revolution of 1848. The pianist managed to show composite transitions from strong-willed mid-flight themes, where it showed the strong spirit of the people, up to choppy lyrical, reflecting themes. The pins of the pianist, as appear, heard a sound altitude of tones, when the sounding was mild and transparent or bright orchestral in the culminations. The well known piece by Ferenc Liszt — the Hungarian rhapsody — has sounded specially temperamentally by saturated of dancing themes. The listeners is warmly hailed the young pianist."
