BIS present a disc of music from two long-standing collaborators: the Russian composer Nikita Koshkin and the Greek guitarist Elena Papandreou.

On the present disc, all four works are world première recordings, and three of them were written with Elena Papandreou in mind. The Megaron Concerto was the result of a commission from the Athens concert hall which has given its name to the concerto.

The composer’s Russian roots are also discernible in the large-scale Quintet.

The most recent composition in the programme is the duo L’istesso tempo from 2010, commissioned to supplement the limited repertoire for cello and guitar.

The disc closes with Polka Papandreou, a brief and light-hearted piece performed here in a version for guitar and string orchestra.
