When he died in November 2015, Eldar Ryazanov left behind an astonishing 50 year, 30 movie legacy which included some of the most popular Russian films of the modern age. And of all of them, the one that remains the most popular is The Irony of Fate, a comedy made for MOS film in 1975. But The Irony of Fate owes part of it's immense popularity not just to it's genius director, it's clever comedy, it's satirical subplot or it's starring actors. It is a film with songs. And those songs and the underscore that accompanied them have become as memorable as the film itself, they have become part of the Russian musical DNA, recognized even when the name of their composer, Mikael Tariverdiev, is not. Following the award-nominated Film Music collection of last year, comes the first in a series of stand-alone reissues documenting the astonishing body of work by Russian composer Mikael Tariverdiev.
