Description: Like Vol. 1 (06P072), there's a what-the-heck-is-that-I'm-hearing piece here in the second and final volume of this series: the first Sonatina of 1942 has a first movement that sounds like boogie-woogie and it turns out to be based on Bashkir folk music! Anyway, the Shostakovichian irony and Prokofievian march rhythms and good humor are Peyko's main traits, along with some very attractive slow movements tinged with a delicious and delicate nostalgia. Dmitry Korostelyov (piano).
