Notes and Editorial Reviews
This newest volume from Delos features many of the performers who have gained global acclaim for the previous installments: Marianna Tarassova, Konstantin Pluzhnikov and Fyodor Kuznetsov. Famous Cycles Five contains the 'From Jewish Folk Poetry' series and 'Suite to Words by Michelangelo Buonarroti' and illustrates the evocative and moving themes that would impact the composer all his life: suffering, parting and loss. This critical newest installment, like the previous offerings, will be the focus of a major global publicity and marketing campaign.
