Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Maxim Rubtsov, principal flutist of the Russian National Orchestra and pianist-producer Sergei Kvitko perform a collection of Russian miniatures ranging from arrangements of beloved romances by Rimsky-Korsakov and Glinka to transcriptions for piccolo of humorous character pieces by Lyadov; from well-known masterworks such as Rachmaninoff's Vocalise to the first ever recordings of selections from Songs of Moscow Gypsies, a music collection preserved in the Russian Imperial Collection of the U. S. Library of Congress; from sadness and despair of Tchaikovsky's Was I Not a Little Blade of Grass to the virtuoso buzz of possibly the world's fastest Bumblebee that zooms through in about 55 seconds.

Recording information: Blue Griffin's Studio 'The Ballroom', Lansing, MI (02/2010).
