In addition to pieces that showcase his mastery of earlier Russian art music, this collection includes a previously unpublished lightning-speed poetry recitation from a private collection (Semyon Nadson's "Dream"). Includes notes with English translations to connect all listeners with his word-painting and nuances. Includes performances of compositions by Robert Schumann, Theo Koenemann, Mikhail Glinka, Ludwig van Beethoven, Modest Mussorgsky, Gioacchino Rossini, Giuseppe Verdi, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov , Vincenzo Bellini, Arrigo Boito, and Alexander Borodin.
