Yevstigney Fomin - Orfeo ed Euridice (2009)

Fomin

Pratum Integrum Orchestra, The Horn Orchestra of Russia

An event highly significant in the development of Russian culture occurred at the end of Empress Catherine II’s reign in the 4 late 18th century. A melodrama based on the Classical myth of Orpheus and Eurydice by dramatist Yakov Knyazhnin and composer Yevstigney Fomin was highly acclaimed by theatre audiences, first in St Petersburg and then Moscow.
The forthcoming premiere in Moscow was announced in the following terms in a supplement to the newspaper ‘Mosskovskiye vedomosti’ in the year 1795: ‘On February 5th... the new melo- drama Orpheus will be performed with the accompanying ballets and choruses of the infernal Furies. Music for the choruses and the melodrama as a whole written by the composer Fomin in the Ancient Greek style has been received very favourably in St Petersburg.’ This event was remembered in Russia for many years afterwards.

Pratum Integrum Orchestra

The Pratum Integrum orchestra performs with authentic instruments. The Latin name translates as ‘unmown meadow’ and refers to their broad-ranging repertoire from the Baroque and Classical periods, about which little is known to this day. This is the only orchestra in Russia in which all the groups of historic instruments are represented: strings, wind and percussion, and moreover all the instruments were made in the 18th to 19th centuries or copied from period examples. Pratum Integrum’s performances are a careful recreation using original treatises, primary sources and eye-witness accounts by contemporaries. 
The orchestra was established in Moscow in 2003 with sponsorship from the company Essential Music, immediately gaining a reputation as an extraordinary, outstanding and highly professional group of musicians with a predilection for fast tempos and vivid, fresh interpretations.
