Description: Russian opera paraphrases by various composers and pianists, Pabst having just over half of the disc's 66-minute length devoted to his three Tchaikovsky pieces. Niemann's seems not to be otherwise available and the Glinka/Balakirev is almost equally rare. Needless to say, Dubé's own 14-minute fantasy on Sheherezade-ian themes is new to disc. Jean Dubé (piano).
