Description: Scriabin and Medtner hog just over half the playing time unfortunately but there are still 34 minutes of fairly rare Russian repertoire here, the largest piece being Wyschnegradski’s Etude where diehards may want to find out why this pianist takes 10:54 while Thomas Günther, on Vol. 1 of Cybele’s “Russian Futurism” series (which we offered in 2009) does it in 8:22. Oh, and Peter Catoire is Georgi’s son; too bad his piece is only two minutes long... . Anna Zassimova (piano).
