Notes & Reviews:

With the collaboration of pianist Alexander Ghindin, Cyprien Katsaris explores lesser-known pieces of Russian music for four-hand piano. Occasional pieces, transcriptions, settings of popular songs, or original compositions, these works by Glinka and Tchaikovsky will delight all who take pleasure in veering from the beaten path. From the famous Fantasy on Two Russian Folk Songs transcribed by Balakirev, reputedly leader of the "Group of Five," to the traditional melodies of Slavic folklore in all its abundance, this highly original program is delivered in close understanding between two inspired virtuoso pianists.
