Melodiya presents selected works of Russian piano music of the 20th century performed by Yury Favorin.

This album features names that are virtually unknown to today’s wide audience – Gavriil Popov, Vladimir Rebikov and Samuil Feinberg. For the first time on record, Melodiya presents the Grand Suite by Gavriil Popov, one of the most talented representatives of “avant-garde Soviet music” of the 1920s to the early 1930s. Vladimir Rebikov was one of the first representatives of Russian music modernism. His piano cycle On the Other Side was inspired by the works of Spanish painter Francisco Goya. Samuil Feinberg is known first of all as a prominent pianist, educator and successor to the traditions of the Russian piano school. Nevertheless, he regarded himself as, first and foremost, a composer and heir to Alexander Scriabin’s creative aspirations. The album also includes works by Prokofiev and Shostakovich.

A prize-winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, one of the world’s most prestigious tournaments, Yury Favorin graduated from the Moscow Conservatory under professor Mikhail Voskresensky. The young musician gives special attention to contemporary and rarely performed music. The programmes of his performances are noted for their careful structure.
