Notes & Reviews:

World Premiere Recordings! The Bach family is not the only one to have produced several major composers. The Russian Jewish Krein family is almost unknown outside Russia. Abram Krein, father of the family, had seven sons; all became successful professional musicians. Works of four of his sons are represented on this disc. Pianist and musicologist Jascha Nemtsov started his international career in 1992. He has recorded almost 30 CDs, featuring many world premieres amidst a vast spectrum of works.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
This record presents music of three members of the Krein family, a highly musical Russian- Jewish family, conspicuous in musical life from the late-19th Century well into the 20th. Represented are Alexander (1883-1951), his brother Grigori (1879-1957), and Grigori's son Julian (1913-96). In the music of all three composers the strongest debt is to Scriabin and Jewish folk music. Jascha Nemtsov plays this music exceptionally well - the performances are sympathetic, carefully calibrated, and sometimes very powerful.
