Alexey Stanchinsky was considered an outstanding student by his teacher Taneyev, his work anticipating Stravinsky, Prokofiev and others, paving the way towards many aspects of 20th-century style. His tragic early death and publishing difficulties meant that his music was hidden for decades. Volume 1 of this complete edition contains his entire output until 1910, including several world première recordings and revealing his early melodic gift and sophisticated virtuosity.

Olga Solovieva graduated from the Russian Academy of Music (Moscow) and took a post-graduate course as an assistant to Leonid Blok. In 1999 she was a prize-winner at the Open Taneyev Chamber Music Competition, Russia, and in 2000 a finalist at the XX Chamber Music Competition in Trapani, Italy. She received the Best Accompanist Prize at the XII International Tchaikovsky Competition and is a Boris Tchaikovsky Society Award Winner (2010). She has recorded for Naxos (Sergey Taneyev, 8557804, and Boris Tchaikovsky, 8557727 and 8573207) as well as for Toccata Classics, Albany records and Northern Flowers.
