Catalogue Number: 10P058
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Mushel taught composition at the Conservatory of Tashkent and became one of the first true exponents of Uzbek music and this 76-minute disc of first recordings are all sourced in the landscapes, music and traditions of that exotic land. Needless to say, its picturesque, optimistic and joyous qualities are also the quintessential ingredients of Soviet socialist realism. Benjamin Saunders (organ of Leeds Cathedral).
