Maxim Rubtsov, principal flutist of the Russian National Orchestra (conducted by Mikhail Pletnev) and pianist-producer Sergei Kvitko perform a collection of Russian miniatures ranging from arrangements of beloved romances by Rimsky-Korsakov and Glinka to transcriptions for piccolo of humorous character pieces by Lyadov; from well-known masterworks such as Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise to the first ever recordings of selections from Songs of Moscow Gypsies, music collection preserved in the Russian Imperial Collection of the U. S. Library of Congress; from sadness and despair of Tchaikovsky’s Was I Not a Little Blade of Grass to the virtuoso buzz of possibly the worlds fastest Bumblebee that zooms through in about 55 seconds.
