    Apart from the regular use of some his works in examination syllabuses, the music of Rebikov (1866-1920) is shockingly neglected - most items on this CD are receiving their first recording - and this is the composer who was once called 'the father of Russian modernism'. One of the first proponents of the whole-tone scale, his music is in a bewildering array of styles, influenced by composers as diverse as Debussy, Stravinsky, Copland and Villa-Lobos.

    The music here, part from the 20-minute Esclavage et libert?, consists of a number of suites of impressionist music.

    Modern, but bright, direct and often humorous music makes Rebikov the perfect composer for pianists and piano enthusiasts whatever their preferences in genre - all played with superb musicianship and wit by ANTHONY GOLDSTONE.
