Notes & Reviews:

Igor Raykhelson cut his teeth as a jazz pianist; a meeting with the violist Yuri Bashmet turned him towards classical music. Raykhelson's concertos for piano (2007) and cello (2010) were written for the two prominent Russian instrumentalists on this recording, pianist Boris Berezovsky and cellist Alexander Kniazev. Raykhelson's melodic language is rooted in Rachmaninov and Prokofiev. (Raykhelson's music is) 'a world of unreconstructed and unapologetic Romanticism'. - Fanfare
