Beautiful, bold, striking piano music – as new a sound as any music hidden, forgotten, or forbidden; as traditional a blast as a stiff shot of vodka. But it is also a reminder that the red flag, once a symbol of insurrection and disobedience, has not all-of-a-sudden turned white. Some of the high modernists from last century have basked in relative obscurity since their deaths. One who should be more widely heard are Lourié, Mossolov, Protopopov and Roslavetz. Their music has excellent craftsmanship and inspiration. They were notable in their incorporation of modern classical into their music. They are most remembered for the soviet songs, but there is much in addition to appreciate.

That at the beginning of this century many an impulse for the development of fine arts, as well as literature, came from the Russian Empire—soon the Soviet Union—is no longer a mystery. And that there were in Moscow and St. Petersburg such developments, inventions, and ideas as far as music was concerned has also become common knowledge in recent years—and equally known is how most of these Russian/Soviet protagonists of a new art had to suffer for their ideas. — Steffen Schleiermacher
