A recital of Russian contemporary pieces alongside works by Shostakovich. The brilliant Japanese pianist, Maki Sekiya, presents here a recital that juxtaposes the two piano sonatas of Shostakovich with Russian contemporary pieces that reflect the influence of minimalism and electronica. “Yarilo” for piano and electronics by the Moscow-trained composer, Nikolai Korndorf, is one of the great classics of Russian contemporary keyboard music, and for the pieces by Yusopova and Popoff, Maki is joined by the exceptional Oxford-based Theremin player, Lydia Kavina.

“An extraordinary, irrepressible energy which doesn’t know an end.” - V.G.Rozhnovsky
