The breadth of Anton Rubinstein’s contribution to the development of Russian culture in the 19th century cannot be overstated. His multifaceted genius can be divided into three areas: Rubinstein the composer, the pianist, and the educator. This third release of recordings of his works for piano and orchestra focuses on Rubinstein’s role as a pianist. A champion of esoteric repertoire, Anna Shelest is an international award-winning pianist who has thrilled audiences around the world. Her collaboration with conductor Neeme Järvi on this Rubinstein project has been praised by Gramophone magazine for “power and agility.”
