About the album

With the collaboration of the Muscovite pianist Alexander Ghindin, Cyprien Katsaris explores lesser-known pieces of Russian music for four-hand piano. Occasional pieces, transcriptions, settings of popular songs or original compositions, these works by Glinka and Tchaikovsky will delight all those who take pleasure in erring from the beaten path. From the famous Fantasy on Two Russian Folk Songs transcribed by Balakirev, reputedly leader of the “Group of Five” to the traditional melodies of slavic folklore in all its abundance, this highly original programme is delivered in close understanding between two inspired virtuoso pianists.
