Warner/Nuzova Duo: Russian
Cello Music / Wendy Warner, cello; Irina Nuzova, piano
Wendy Warner studied with Rostropovich, and she carries on his legacy of great cello playing. She and
Irina Nuzova play beautifully in these recordings of music by Rachmaninov,
Miaskovsky, Prokofiev, Schnittke, and Scriabin. Especially of note is that this
is the first American recording of Miaskovsky’s mellifluous Sonata No. 2, a
work that’s rarely performed outside of Russia. This music was recently featured on Performance Today and was one of our favorite classical albums of 2010. This recording of Russian cello music can be sent to you as thanks for a donation of $90 (or about $7 per month).
Chopin: The Essentials
When you donate $60 (or choose to send $5 per month) to WV Public Radio, we can send you this lovely Chopin
collection. Beautiful, romantic piano music performed by great pianists that
you frequently hear on the radio, including Olga Kern (interview), Jon
Nakamatsu, Nobuyuki Tsujii, Frederic Chiu, and Alexandre Tharaud. It’s
a quick and pleasant tour through the essential Chopin – his waltzes,
polonaises, mazurkas, ballades, sonatas, and concertos. Chopin: The Essentials wonderful introduction to Chopin and a great
gift (perhaps paired with a box of chocolates?:)
