This fascinating collection features unfamiliar compositions for keyboards, four hands. They are performed by the remarkable pianist Viktoria Postnikova together with Rozhdestvensky. They play three instruments: harpsichord, organ and piano.

Apart from better known sonatas by Mozart and a fantasia by Schubert, listeners will discover organ fugues composed by Schubert and a friend of his, a famous composer and conductor of his time, Franz Lachner, a harpsichord sonata by Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach (Johann Sebastianís ninth son), eight-hand compositions by the Czech classic Bedřich Smetana, and unfairly forgotten arrangements of Russian folk songs by the founder of The Five, Mily Balakirev.

The compositions for piano six and eight hands were recorded with the well known piano duet of Elena Sorokina and Alexander Bakhchiev.
