5 stars It is a joke that Edward Artemiev wrote the soundtracks for nearly a half of Russian (and not only) movies and a 3/4 of cartoons, but there's a grain of truth in that joke. A pioneer of Russian electronic music, who is well-known for his innovative works with ANS synthesizer (which was a photo-electronic device whose mechanism is difficult to describe) whose unique sound he demonstrated, among other, in movies "Solaris" and "Mirror" directed by Andrey Tarkowsky, he made a succesful attempt to combine electronic music, symphoprog and elements of ethnic music in his memorable "Warmth of Earth" suite. Based on lyrics of Yury Rytkheu, a Chucotian poet who praised the beauty of nature, life of small northern folk Chukchi, this is a true masterpiece of a famous artist. Music is really beautiful and creates with talent the atmosphere of this large northern region sparsely populated by small folk, its way of life and traditions. The voice of Jeanne Rozhdestvenskaya, strong, then mellow and then strong again (in fact, it covers 4 octaves!), brings colours of peace and comfort. Birth of Earth/Who I Am! are the best tracks in my opinion. Highly recommended!
