Cellist Jamal Aliyev and pianist Anna Fedorova explore the Russian works that have been central to both their musical and family heritages.

In the introduction to this new recording Aliyev and Fedorova describe the shared experience of being brought up by parents who were musically schooled in Russia’s Soviet music tradition, lending a special resonance and insight to their performances and collaboration. This disc includes Sonatas and other works by a broad palette of different Russian styles, including Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, Glazunov, Borodin and Shchedrin.

BBC Introducing Classical Artist Jamal Aliyev is rapidly becoming one of the most sought after cellists of his generation. Aliyev has performed frequently on BBC Radio 3, and is the First Prize winner of several international competitions, including the Muriel Taylor Cello Competition (2014); Croydon Concerto Competition (2015); Bromsgrove International Competition (2015) and Eastbourne Concerto Competition (2016). Aliyev has also twice won both the Royal College of Music Concerto Competition (2014 and 2015) and the Royal College of Music Violoncello Competition (2014 and 2015), the college where he also studies.

Anna Fedorova is one of the world’s leading young pianists. From an early age, she demonstrated an innate musical maturity and outstanding technical abilities. Her international concert career took off while she was only a child, and audiences around the world were stunned by the depth and power of her musical expression. Critics have praised Anna’s signature “sweet modesty and wild expression”, which rendered listeners “completely taken by surprise, compelled and astonished.”
