Description: Nikolai Tcherepnin, like Glazunov one of the great Rimsky-Korsakov pupils driven into emigration by the Russian Revolution, is still not completely rediscovered. Three of his miniature cycles are presented here in first recordings. The poetic lyricism of the turn-of-the-century préludes and morceaux, with their romantic, shimmering richness of color contrasts with the subtle originality of the folk song arrangements Primitifs from 1926, in which the new era has its say. Andrea Vivanet (piano).
