Description: We offer the second Java Suite in seven months (see 09I046) a work from 1925 which paints the landscape that so impressed the composer on his travels in the 1920s in vivid, glowing colors and gives virtuosity a back seat. Of course, the latter comes back full force in the third of his 1912 collection of virtuosic transformations of the waltz music of Strauss. Konstantin Scherbakov (piano).
