There are many great contemporary composers of our time, but few write music that we can relate to so easily and closely as Nikolai Kapustin. His exquisite use of techniques and musical languages of classical and jazz ensures that his music appeals to a wide range of listeners. To those who love classical music but know little about jazz it does not sound too unfamiliar, and vice versa. Indeed, it gives great pleasure to even the most untrained ears of either genre of music. The Korean pianist Yeol Eum Son has long been a champion of the composer, and became friends with him. This album is therefore a personal and affectionate tribute to this unique genius, and a wonderful introduction to his music.
