Chimes: Upon Reading V. M. Shukshin (Russian: Перезвоны — По прочтении В. М. Шукшина, romanized: Perezvony — Po prochtenii V. M. Shukshina) is a choral symphony by Valery Gavrilin. It was composed between 1978 and 1982, and premiered in 1984. The texts, inspired after a reading of Vasily Shukshin, are compiled from folk poetry, Albina Shulgina, and Gavrilin himself. The premiere in 1984 was seen as a turning away from European themes to Russian themes in Gavrilin’s output.
The work was recorded by Melodiya in 1988, with the soloists Natalia Gerasimova, Svetlana Beloklokova, Ludmila Slepneva, Anatoly Lyubimov, and the Moscow Chamber Choir, conducted by Vladimir Minin .

The composer was inspired to create “Chimes” (1982) by the work of Vasily Shukshin, so the work also has a subtitle – “After reading V.M. Shukshina.” Vasily Makarovich Shukshin would have turned 95 years old in 2024.
In his interviews, Valery Gavrilin explained: “what Shukshin professed, what he thought painfully about, constantly resonates with me. The roots of his art go deep into his native land… Everything he wrote is extremely sincere, uncompromising, full of love for man and his native land. I invite my listeners to think about this.”

“Chimes” is a parable about a noble robber, the essence of which the author outlined as follows: “The composition should convey the spiritual life of the people through the fate of one person: from birth – through childhood, youth and maturity – to the end. An endless road along which people walk, generation after generation.”

Valery Gavrilin (1939–1999) was born in Vologda. Graduate of the Leningrad Conservatory. A composer of extraordinary emotional sensitivity and keen vision, the owner of a rare melodic gift, an artist with his own theme, with his own completely unique language. His music is euphonious, but not simple. The basis of Gavrilin’s vocal cycles and vocal-symphonic poems was folk song. His songs inspire “actions” – a special genre of musical and poetic theater created by the composer. Valery Gavrilin composed a lot of wonderful music: operas, suites, oratorios, works for theater and cinema, dramatic songs, a ballet based on Chekhov’s Anyuta. For the choral symphony-action “Chimes” he was awarded the USSR State Prize (1985).
