Romantic Interpretations

Alla Nikitskaya
This album is dedicated to the memory of Pavel Messner, Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory professor, Alla Nikitskaya's teacher.

The debut American recording of Alla Nikitskaya, Russian pianist who, relocated to New Hampshire, is inspired by the beauty of New England nature, so instantly similar to her home, but a universe away at the same time. This is why genius works of Rakhmaninov and Tchaikovsky, full of the nostalgic beauty, as well as romantic pieces of Chopin and Liszt, are on this album.
