New and traditional pieces from Russia, the land of the piano
Glinka and Gubajdulina are the chronological cornerstones featured on the cover. But in between, you’ll find well-known composers (Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Glazunov, Scriabin, Kabalevsky, Shostakovich) and exciting new discoveries (Gravilin, Kossenko, Mylnikov). The result is a well-sorted mixture of "Russian Piano Music." Russia, a land with a long pianistic tradition, is presented here in a multi-faceted way with a compelling assortment of pieces. The subtitle "Play-Experience-Enjoy" also keeps its promise: these 24 pieces, ranging from easy to moderately difficult, are supplied with extensive comments of special interest to piano teachers by the renowned pedagogue Linde Grossmann.
