Notes & Reviews:

The Russian repertoire of folk music is extensive, going back many hundreds of years. During the Soviet era this repertoire was added to with a wide range of original compositions, clearly inspired by and deliberately harking back to the folk idiom. The repertoire of this disc is drawn from the cream of Russian folk and folk-inspiried music, brimming with melody and saturated in emotions. All expertly interpreted by Takako Nishizaki, Naxos' best-selling artist.
