Tatyana Grindenko (1946 - 1982)

Standard classical repertoire is by no means the limit of violinist Tatyana Grindenko’s musical interests. Trained under the mighty Soviet system in St Petersburg (by Boris Sergeyev, a pupil of Auer-trained Miron Polyarkin) and Moscow (by Yuri Yankelevich), she won prizes at various well-established competitions including the Tchaikovsky and Wieniawski, and started on the usual path of touring and recording. Towards the end of the 1970s, though, she began to step away from the mainstream, becoming a member of one of the USSR’s first rock groups, Boomerang, along with composer and keyboardist Vladimir Martynov who introduced her to works by little-known early composers such as Dufay and Ockeghem, as well as the avant-garde—both areas marked with official disapproval by the Soviet regime. Grindenko’s pioneering spirit also led her to cofound the first Baroque ensemble in the USSR, the Moscow Academy of Early Music, with her brother, Alexei Lyubimov. Her explorations of new music and new ways of performing old music have been embodied more recently in the work of the ensemble Opus Posth, which realises the philosophical concepts of Grindenko and Martynov. Considering themselves ‘channels of time’ through playing music, they offer post-modern reappraisals of long-dead composers’ works, capturing their spirit often in a minimalist or ‘trance’ style, and with the performers wearing face masks in order to conceal their living personages.
