Russian-born cellist Misha Quint and pianist Svetlana Gorokhovich present their new CD “Matryoskha Blues”. Like the colorful, embedded Russian dolls (matryoshkas), Quint presents an revealing variety of repertoire on this recording: from the tender and popular Saint-Saëns The Swan from Carnival of the Animals, to Handel’s Larghetto from Sonata for Violin and Basso Continuo transcribed for cello and piano. The title track, Matryoshka Blues by jazz composer Nathan Davis and Alfred Schnitkke’s later work Sonata No. 1 for Cello and Piano represent the contemporary realm of music.  Beautiful transcriptions of Gabriel Fauré’s Élégie, Op. 24, Alexander Scriabin’s Etude in B-Flat minor, Op. 8 and Sergei Profoviev’s March from The Love for Three Oranges round out the release. The CD provides layers of sound and musical thought, an unfolding musical experience.
