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. The Korean pianist Yeol Eum Son has long been a champion of the composer and became friends with him. Her album is a personal and affectionate tribute to this unique genius, and a wonderful introduction to Kapustin’s music.
