Abstract or Description

Schnittke and his music is not so much rooted in the Russian clulture of the twentieth-century or in German culture of the seventeenth century (with which he always felt a deep affinity), but in a much more remote era of early Christian mysticism. Schnittke, a deeply religious man, was a true follower of this tradition, going back to the Old and New Testament and early Byzantine literature. The article includes a detailed analysis of Schnittke's piece 'Klingende Buchstaben' dedicated to the author.
