Maria Lettberg performs works by Scriabin on CD. The CD includes fascinating visualizations of Scriabin's music - the composer associated with his music with color progressions. Scriabin is the only true heir of Chopin, in the sense that his piano music not only derives from the piano but also extends and redefines the scope of the very instrument - indeed, more of an acquired taste due to its vast idiosyncrasies but possibly even more addictive.

Many, perhaps most, listeners may lose interest in this disc of Schnittke's three piano concertos after the first concerto ends. But some, not a lot, perhaps, but a very enthusiastic minority, will gain interest after that. The Concerto for piano and orchestra from 1960 shows the influence of Bartók, with lots of brass and percussion in the outer movements and plenty of swashbuckling pianism throughout. The Concerto for piano and strings from 1979, however, is a more dissonant, allusive, and often frankly brutal work, and the Concerto for piano four hands and chamber orchestra from 1988 is more fractured and fractious still, driving the soloists and the orchestra to the brink of collapse in the climaxes.

Over the course of his tragically short life, Alexander Scriabin wrote monumental works of great import. In between these efforts he produced a steady torrent of miniatures – concentrated gems of this same expansive genius. Fascinatingly, the title Poème is applied both to symphonic works and to the extended series of thirty-four piano pieces recorded here. Their inspirations are as varied as their titles and they offer a key into their composer's inner world. Pianist Garrick Ohlsson is an acknowledged master of the genre, and this new Scriabin recording will only enhance his already admirable reputation.

Between Richard Strauss and Ludwig Thuille (born in 1864 and 1861 respectively) existed a strong friendship and mutual respect. Their two youthful cello sonatas share the same idiom: passionate and lateromantic soaring themes, a profound lyricism and a virtuoso writing for both cello and piano.

After exploring Japanese music ( "Haiku") and luzofońskiej ( "Sobremesa"), Anna Maria Jopek this time sing in Polish with the Cuban people. Anna Maria Jopek sings them with the Cuban trio of one of the greatest improvising pianists of our time - a phenomenal Gonzalo Rubalcaba. Of the hundreds of old tangos and Boler artists they chose the ones that inspire them most (eg "This last Sunday," "Rebecca," "Your mouth lie") and could become a bridge between what is past, the world of the 30s of last century and contemporary vocal music. Bridge between cultures - Polish, Cuban, Jewish, Argentine and American.

Norwegian folk musician Sinikka Langeland, singer and player of the kantele (the Finnish table harp) is a distinctly non-traditional traditionalist, redefining "folk" in successive projects. 'Maria's Song' finds her in the company of two distinguished classical musicians - organist Kare Nordstoga and "giant of the Nordic viola" Lars Anders Tomter - and on a mission to restore Marian texts to sacred music, weaving folk melodies in between the timeless strains of J S Bach. Langeland made a lot of friends with her sparkling ECM debut Starflowers: "There are jewels everywhere on this arresting example of ego-free music-making. One of the albums of this or any other year" raved the Irish Times. Where Starflowers brought Langeland into the orbit of jazz improvisers, Maria's Song is a meeting and cross referencing of folk and 'classical' energies, and also a righting of historical 'injustice': Religious folk songs are amongst the most distinctive elements of the Norwegian folk tradition, yet the Virgin Mary rarely appears in them. Once a much-worshipped figure in the Far North she was, as Sinikka puts it, "reformed" away in 1537, so this album brings Maria back into the music. It was recorded in the beautiful Nidaros Cathedral of Trondheim, famous for its Baroque organ heard here.

What happens when the piercing sound of the kabuki Flute meets wistful Slavic Dumka?
HAIKU is an attempt to find a common ground for Polish and Japanese musical traditions. It is a joint project created by AMJ and Makoto Ozone. There have been legends circulating about how the two had met. But the truth is that Ozone heard AMJ’s concert at Tokyo’s Blue Note and was so impressed he asked her to perform parts on his album ‘Road to Chopin’. The recording session lasted 4 minutes, one take (AMJ did not even take her coat off). Once the very last chord of this song rang, they both knew that there is a metaphysical bond of understanding between them, unusual unity in music that is often only imagined after years of collaboration.

Lusine Zakaryan (Armenian: Լուսինե Զաքարյան), born Svetlana Zakaryan, (June 1, 1937 in Akhaltsikhe, Georgian SSR – December 30, 1992, in Yerevan, Armenia), was an Armenian soprano. She grew up in the Samtskhe-Javakheti region of southern Georgia. In 1952, she moved with her family to Yerevan, where she attended a secondary music school. She entered the Yerevan State Musical Conservatory in 1957 and her singing talent soon became clear.
From 1970 to 1983, Zakaryan was a soloist with the symphony orchestra of Armenian TV and Radio. She also sang in the choir of the Armenian Apostolic Church's Holy See at the Echmiadzin Cathedral, and it is for her magnificent rendition of centuries-old Armenian spiritual hymns that she is now most remembered.
Zakaryan was also known for singing the international opera repertoire as well as Armenian traditional and church music.
