Notes & Reviews:

Anthony Goldstone is one of Britain's most respected pianists. He has enjoyed a career encompassing six continents, many broadcasts and nearly 70 CDs. This is the third volume in his series of music for piano by Russian composers.

"As any one familiar with Red Poppy and Ilya Mourometz will know, Gliere is a composer with a melodic gift, strong sense of color, and a Russian character that brings him close to the soil of his land...The three Mazurkas...breathe the air of Chopin, while the 12 Esquisses...have a sometimes wistful charm of their own and contrast well. It seems astonishing that this music has been ignored in the concert hall. Goldstone offers superlative playing and notes, and the engineers have been inspired to produce superb sound."-American Record Guide
