About

Maria Yudina [1899-1970] was famous in the 20th century for her uncompromising religious beliefs and standing up to Stalin. It is often forgotten that she was not only a consummate player of Bach (like Richter or Gould), but also of Beethoven and ‘decadent’ composers such as Bartók, Berg, Krenek and Stravinsky, the ‘cosmopolitan’ Russian, at a time when these composers were not only unknown but effectively banned in Soviet Russia. A genuinely unforgettable musical testimony.
