Notes and Editorial Reviews

I will have to admit I enjoyed this CD and I am what you would call a hard-core classical music lover. Why? First, all the musicians are classically trained. Kramer is one of the leading Jazz teachers in Russia; a man who is constantly developing ways to attract new listeners to what he loves and believes in. The Glinka Quartet is one of Russia's finest quartets of today - the combination of the two is irresistible. Here is a disc that contains "crossover" music of the first order. The subtle, delicate and at the same time bold quartet by Mozart is played beautifully along with the original transcriptions of the most well-known jazz themes made with great taste. The Glinka Quartet and the jazzman Kramer make an unexpectedly appropriate Read more synthesis. In fact, Kramer seems even more free and easy than usual in the Mozart quartet.
