New classical music from Makoto

Makoto sent me 2 CDs worth of classical music last week. One was an entire disc of piano music by a Russian composer called Roslavets (picture to the left). His music bears resemblance to the late works of Scriabin, that is, they sound more modern and I would not call them immediately accessible. I have given them 1 full listening so far and I think I need to spend more time with the music before I can make a decision whether I like it or not.

The other disc contains a selection of sonatas for piano and cello composed by various 20th century composers like Scriabin, Szymanowski and Paderewski. There is one very nice track by a composer called Gantsher – I’ve never heard of him!!!
