Notes and Editorial Reviews
Twice a winner at the Tchaikovsky Competition, Alexander Rudin is arguably the foremost cellist playing in Russia today. Already featured in 'Great Moments', Rudin brings to Cello Classics a stunning recording of the complete works for cello by the much neglected Soviet composer Nikolai Miaskovsky. Spanning from the 1st Sonata of 1911 to the Concerto of 1944 the works reflect the composers natural gift of melody and deep emotional expression. This ravishing recording is played with great eloquence by performers entirely at one with the genre.
