Pianist Swetlana Meermann-Muret takes us on a journey through the heights and depths of the Russian soul in her new GENUIN release. The prizewinner of international competitions devotes herself to gems of piano literature-the rarely recorded miniatures by Anatoly Lyadov and Anton Arensky. Lyadov's Preludes, in particular, are more than just precursors of well-known works by Rachmaninoff and Scriabin! Swetlana Meermann-Muret, a native Russian pianist, devotes herself to these treasures with an attention to detail and a warm sound. Moving testimonies of a lost culture!
