Symphonic Suite No. 1, from the film Komsomol: Patron of Electricity (1932)
Schirmer Russian Music
Sub Category
Large Orchestra
Year Composed
18 Minutes

The film is worth reviving if for no other reason than its extraordinary music. It begins weirdly with a theremin wailing along with a song for a soprano and baritone. The young composer did not yet have a voice, and Stravinsky, Scriabin and Schoenberg keep popping up in his early work. But Popov was cosmopolitan with flair.
