Description: Catoire's straddling of the line between Russian late Romanticism and the harmonic avant-garde of Debussy and Scriabin has been evident in his violin-and-piano pieces and in his piano concerto (although not his symphony). It is plain to hear here too, especially in the last two opus numbers, composed in the tumult of the Russian Revolutionary period. Russian (Cyrillic)-English texts. Yana Ivanilova (soprano), Anna Zassimova (piano).
