Notes and Editorial Reviews

From Mussorgsky to Scrabin, Claire-Marie Le Guay journeys through Eternal Russia. Embracing both the great Romantic repertory and intimate, lesser-known pieces, this musical icon reflects the vast Russian landscape. Though Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee is one of the most frequently played classical works, few people know the piano music of Tchaikovsky, which includes many treasures of poetry. Nostalgic and visionary, these composers built a sound-world in the image of their tormented souls. From Mussorgsky to Scrabin, Claire-Marie Le Guay journeys through Eternal Russia.
