"Music is an original, almost religious experience" asserts pianist Mikhail Rudy. "It brings you into a unique and very different world." Rudy is one of the major representatives of the Russian piano school in Europe. These remarkable interpretations of works by Mussorgsky and Liszt were originally issued on the French label Calliope. The Liszt pieces include his Piano Sonata in B Minor, Czardas obstinee, Ave Maria, En Reve (Nocturne), and Nuages Gris (Gray Clouds).
"Rudy left his native Russia in 1977 and has since earned himself a reputation as a musical perceptive, a pianistic thinker with deeply poetic sensibilities."—Rob Cowan, The Independent
