The album is a tribute to the great masters of Russian guitar music. And Evgeni Finkelstein is surely the one who can best present their work. Some of these compositions haven’t been performed for more than a hundred years and can be heard for the first time on a CD.
The Moscow master guitarist applies the greatest musical sensitivity and masterful virtuosity to these interpretations of works by Nikolai Makarov (1810-1890), Nikolai Alexandrov (1818-1884) and Vladimir Morkov (1801-1864), among others. He also performs compositions by twentieth-century composers, like Sergei Rudnev (*1955), Nikita Koshkin (*1956), Julia Finkelstein (*1977) and Evgeni Finkelstein (*1972) himself. Their place on this album and make it into a comprehensive compilation of Russian music written for the classical guitar that is well worth listening to.
Anyone who has experienced or heard Evgeni Finkelstein's unique art of interpreting classical music – whether live or on CD – and his almost unequaled playing skills knows what a musical treat awaits with each new recording from this artist on six strings, who has won prize after prize.
