Notes and Editorial Reviews

Taped live in St. Petersburg during Tureck’s historic 1995 tour to Russia. Because of the connection between St. Petersburg and the teachers who guided her musical development, Tureck considered her trip to the city a “return”. The great pianist wrote, “After a lifetime of study and scholarly and performing experience throughout the world, I returned with much emotion to a scene and setting that was the origin of my musical foundation and basic artistic standards.” Approx. 95 minutes, Color.
