The pianist Masha Dimitrieva has already appeared in public many times with exciting interpretations. Her excellent CD for the Sonus Eterna classical music label, founded in 2014, is no surprise. The rarely performed but extremely rewarding repertoire is particularly appealing. The 22 compositionally strong miniatures allow the listener to dive deep into the Russian worlds of fantasy and fairy tales.
“It was a great concern of mine to recover this very special, wonderful treasure. The intensity with which these great Russian composers remembered the fairy tale and emotional worlds of their childhood and translated them into sounds and musical structures inspires and touches me deeply” (Masha Dimitrieva).
