Notes & Reviews:

Melodiya continues its series of releases dedicated to the December Evenings Festival that takes place at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts. This album, like the previous one, is dedicated to the 1985 festival World of Romanticism and features pianist Sviatoslav Richter. Together with his several of his outstanding contemporaries, including violinist David Oistrakh, violist Yuri Bashmet and cellist Natalia Gutman, amongst others, Mr. Richter and the various ensembles performed works less known to the audience in Moscow by works by Schubert, Schumann and Chopin.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2015
Captivating live performances featuring some of the most gifted Soviet artists of the day, including an incandescent account of the Schumann D minor Trio.
