Description: Needless to say, this is here for the Kapustin which, in four movements and almost 22 minutes in length, belies its fluffy-sounding title. As you know, classical people call Kapustin's music jazz and jazz performers say it's not really because every note is written out. Here, the fast movements have flavors of ragtime and Latin American rhythms while its soulful adagio breathes the spicy aroma of the blues. Beethoven Trio Bonn.
