Alexei Lubimov is a Russian pianist who also plays fortepiano and harpsichord. In his early years he studied at the Moscow Central Music School, and in 1963, entered the Moscow Conservatory, where he studied with Heinrich Neuhaus and Lew Naumov. He developed a strong interest in Baroque music and 20th century modernist works. Lubimov gave the Soviet premieres of many western compositions, including pieces by Charles Ives, Arnold Schoenberg, John Cage, Terry Riley, Pierre Boulez, and Karlheinz Stockhausen, which brought censorship from the Soviet authorities. For a number of years he was prevented from traveling outside the Soviet Union. Turning to his interest in period instruments and authentic performance practices, he founded the Moscow Baroque Quartet and co-founded the Moscow Chamber Academy with Tatiana Grindenko.

It is with children in mind that I recorded these French Suites, always having heartfelt simplicity and purity in their mind. Children see the world with hope, optimism, and cast in light much like Miró sees the world. I find a childlike purity in him, similar to what I hear in the French Suites. There is a quote by Miró that touches me enormously and makes me think a lot whenever I play, as it reflects something that may be the most difficult aspect of musical interpretation and of art in general: 'To gain freedom is to gain simplicity' - Zhu Xiao-Mei.

Invented in Paris in 1846 by the Belgian-born Adolphe Sax, the saxophone was readily embraced by French composers who championed the new instrument through numerous ensemble and solo compositions. This tradition is celebrated in a programme, performed by the young and exciting Kenari Quartet, that explores the saxophone in all of its colours and sonorities, from Pierre Max Dubois’s light-hearted and jazz-inspired music to the lyrical and expressive world of Alfred Desenclos, and from Jean Françaix’s witty ‘bantering’ to the excitement and energy which closes Florent Schmitt’s Quatour, Op. 102.

One of the most delightful combinations in chamber music is the musical interplay between a keyboard instrument and a melody instrument, where the percussive nature of the keyboard is juxtaposed with the permanent tonal presence of a wind or string instrument. This record features works for piano solo and violin, as well as arrangements of original works for piano and orchestra.

Candide, West Side Story, The Phantom of the Opera, we have selected some of the most beautiful scores of the english speaking repertoire. They take their inspiration in the great stories of litterature, magnified by their composers. These works have been crossing the centuries and create a powerful fascination. The music with flights of lyricism is full of feelings. The sometimes tragic characters intensely portray the challenges that can shape our personalities. Thus, for the characters of Cunégonde, Maria, Christine, the way is resolutely the one of sincerity and reality and this is what makes musical an art that is so close of its public. This recital is a true meeting with the audience!
