Notes & Reviews:

With this music, we are immersed in what was known as the Russian soul, reliving the charm of musical soirees in the aristocratic salons of St. Petersburg.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
This program consists entirely of transcriptions for cello and piano. It makes good dinner music. It was made in 2012 when pianist-composer Mersson was 91. Undeniably pleasant program played with poetry.
