Anatoly Kisselev

Anatoly Kisselev was born in Moscow in 1948, and received his training at the Moscow State Choral School (1955-65), studying with Alexander Sveshnikov, Nikolay Demyanov, Victor Rovdo, and Alexander Flyarkovsky; as well as at the Moscow Conservatory (1965-70), studying orchestration and composition with Alfred Schnittke - who recommended Kisselev to the Soviet Union of Composers.

In the intervening years, Kisselev has become among the brightest figures in contemporary Russian choral music, as the works featured here at the Classical Archives reveal. In this regard, Kisselev is quite indebted to the tradition of Orthodox choral music, and indeed most of his choral works are sacred. At the same time, Kisselev has been active as an electronic composer, organizing a number of courses at the Gnessin Music School and co-founding with E.Artemiev the Russian Association for Electroacoustic Music (AEM). Several of Kisslev's electro-acoustic works are featured here at the Classical Archives, some of which demonstrate the composer's interest in the theremin.

Kisselev also composes symphonic works, chamber music, and music for children - co-creating the children's television program, Lukomorie, for which he's written more than 100 songs. Finally, he has written in the pop and rock genres, including a rock-opera, "December 32." Among his awards is the Grand Prize ("The Golden Aerial") of the "Eurovission" Competition (1997). His music is frequently presented in new music festivals in Russia, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Finland, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Austria, and the USA.
