Fragments of a Requiem is set to a portion of Ana Akhmatova's 'A Russian Requiem' (1935-1961). The piece includes several references to Soviet anthems including Glière's Hymn to the Great City, about St Petersburg/Leningrad, The Red Flag and others. The final reference is to God Save the Tsar, which was banned in Soviet times.
Dedicated to Valery Maksimov
Text by Ana Akhmatova, from 'A Russian Requiem'
