Description: Almost two-thirds of this recital deals with unusual repertoire: Catoire's Morceaux of the 1890s with a luscious mix of Rachmaninov and early Scriabin and the late Poèmes of 1924 and 1926 which glint with the dark fires of late Scriabin; and the five tonality-stretching Préludes of Roslavets (1919-22) which are excellent examples of the art produced by the intellectual ferment of the immediate post-Revolution years. Anna Zassimova (piano).
