Transcription by Gregor Piatigorsky


Wendy Warner (cello) & Irina Nuzova (piano)

The WarnerNuzova duo — cellist Wendy Warner and pianist Irina Nuzova — makes its recording debut with five late-Romantic Russian works on an album dedicated to the memory of one of Warner’s mentors, the illustrious Russian cellist, composer, and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich (1927–2007).

Fittingly, two of the pieces were originally written for Rostropovich: Nikolai Miaskovsky’s rarely heard Sonata No. 2 in A Minor for Cello and Piano, Op. 81; and Alfred Schnittke’s Baroque-inspired Musica nostalgica, for violoncello and piano.

This is the first American recording of Miaskovsky’s mellifluous Sonata No. 2, a work that’s rarely performed outside of Russia. It will be a discovery for most listeners.

Alexander Scriabin’s Etude Op. 8, No. 11, is a beautiful encore piece brimming with chromatic harmonies; Sergei Prokofiev’s Adagio from Ten Pieces from Cinderella, Op. 97b, is based on a duet from his ballet; and Sergei Rachmaninov’s Sonata in G Minor for Cello and Piano, Op. 19, is a riveting four-movement work from the same period as his Second Piano Concerto.

“Warner is a warm, confident and lyrical player who allows the narrative of the music to unfold like a well-told story - a skill that can only come from having real insight into the architecture and soul of this music.” Classic FM Magazine, November 2010 ****

“Alexander Rudin is a most impressive advocate for the enduring qualities of these three deeply moving works. If Rostropovich remains the benchmark in the Concerto, it is now only by the shortest of heads, and Rudin sets a new benchmark in the Sonatas.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2004 *****

Mstislav Rostropovich’s life as a musician was one of incredible creative power. Profil are delighted to present 27 works on four CDs – all of them inspired by the artist and human being Mstislav Rostropovich; either once dedicated to him or premiered by him. They have been recorded on these four CDs as a lasting homage to the maestro.

The live recordings are taken from the eighth Kronberg Cello Festival “in remembrance – celebrating Slava” in 2007, where friends, former students and companions of Mstislav Rostropovich gathered to honour his memory and celebrate a unique artist.

"Cellist, pianist, conductor and communicator par excellence, Mstislav (‘Slava’) Rostropovich remains a powerful presence on the international music scene." Gramophone

“These recordings were all captured live at the Kronberg Cello Festival in 2007, the year of Mstislav Rostropovich's death, and the pieces were either written for him, premiered by him or… composed in his memory. The line-up includes some very distinguished names, and even the less familiar throw themselves into the celebration with commitment and fervour.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2008 ****
