Description: For those of you collecting this Lourié cycle (Capriccio having interceded with their two-disc set last October), this volume covers the years 1912-1938 which contain his most avant-garde works dating from the years of the First World War and the Revolution and its aftermath to the sequence of more conservative yet characterful miniatures dating from after Stalin’s minions had stomped on anything progressive in the arts. Giorgio Koukl (piano).
