Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album of classical-jazz fusion contains the works of composer Nikolai Kapustin. By the 1950’s, Kapustin had built a reputation for himself as a jazz pianist and master improviser. It is only in recent years, however, that his classical-form compositions have come to light through recordings.

Christine Rauh is the soloist featured on this recording.
