Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sergei Bortkiewicz was born in the Ukraine, spent time in Germany, and became an Austrian citizen, but always remained truly Russian at heart and as such is a true successor of the Romantic tradition of Tchaikovsky. Alfonso Soldano is a professor of piano performance at the Braga Conservatory in Teramo, Italy. He was a student of Ciccolini and is renowned for his virtuosity. These two artists work together to present the latest release in Divine Art's Russian Piano Music Series.
