From the Publisher
This collection contains works, selected and arranged by Franco Cesarini, that explore the wide spectrum of Russian romantic music. On one side are the followers of Russian nationalism, including composers from Glinka and Mussorgsky, to Cui and Glasunov. They provide a contrast to the more western influenced music of Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein. The book comes with a CD which includes demos of each piece and piano accompaniments to play along with when a pianist isn't available.
