Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording charts a two-decade period in the musical life of the eminent Dagestani composer, teacher and conductor, Murad Kazhlaev. He has always written with idiomatic flair for his own instrument, the piano, from the early Romantic Sonatina to the beautiful folk themes that make up the Dagestan Album. His nonchalant wit can be savored in Picture Pieces whilst expressive beauty permeates the Six Preludes.
