Konstantin Vassiliev’s music synthesizes several different styles including jazz, Russian folk music, and contemporary Western traditions. This album contains music written over a 22-year period, with three works composed specifically for guitar soloist Yuri Liberzon. Hommage à Tom Jobin was inspired by one of the creators of the bossa nova style, while the melancholic and lyrical contrasts of Rose in the Snow reveal Vassiliev’s gift for storytelling. Arias, romantic miniatures, variations, and multi-character episodes further reveal Vassiliev to be a vibrant and exciting composer of wide-ranging gifts.
