Item Number: NX.SWR19002CD
This album of classic-jazz fusion contains the works of composer Nikolai Kapustin (b. 1937). By the 1950's, Kapustin had built a reputation for himself as a jazz pianist and master improviser. It is only in recent years, however, that his classical-form compositions have come to light through recordings. Christine Rauh is the soloist featured on this recording. During the recording process, she maintained a close relationship with the composer, and she does an outstanding job of conveying the groove, wit, and rhythmic vitality of these compositions. Performing alongside Ms. Rauh are saxophonist Peter Lehel, pianist Benyamin Nuss, vibraphonist Ni Fan, and the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Kaiserslautern Saarbrucken under the direction of Nicholas Collon.
