Russian Music for Cello & PianoCedille Records
The WarnerNuzova duo - cellist Wendy Warner and pianist Irina Nuzova - makes its recording debut with five late-Romantic works on Russian Music for Cello & Piano on Cedille Records. The album is dedicated to the memory of one of Warner's mentors, the illustrious Russian cellist, composer, and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich. Fittingly, two of the pieces on the CD were originally written for Rostropovich: Nikolai Miaskovsky's rarely performed Sonata No. 2 in A Minor for Cello and Piano, Op. 81, and Alfred Schnittke's Musica nostalgica, for violoncello and piano. Also on the recording are a transcription of Alexander Scriabin's Etude Op. 8, No. 11; Sergei Prokofiev's Adagio from Ten Pieces from Cinderella, Op. 97b; and Sergei Rachmaninov's Sonata in G Minor for Cello and Piano, Op. 19.
