R E V I E W S:

"The Russian-American pianist Alexandre Moutouzkine has produced an album of fascinating music by composers who, except perhaps for Léo Brouwer, are almost unknown outside of Cuba...The pieces are all short, and they're in various styles, but without exception they combine elements of vernacular and concert music. A real winner, of interest far beyond the circle of Latin American classical music fans."

-- James Manheim, AllMusic Guide

"Whether tackling classical repertoire or not,
Read more this Russian pianist takes a dive into the deep end of Cuban classical piano works by composers generally residing off the beaten path. ...this set is a real, unexpected treat that tickles the ears with jus the right touch."
