Tales from the Dinaridesbegins with two ofBrahms' Hungarian Dances(Nos. 1 & 5), followed by the title track, written for us by Montreal-based composerAirat Ichmouratov, and generously commissioned with funds from the University of Alberta. For the next tracks,Smetana's Die MoldauandChopin's Mazurka in Bb major, you may be surprised to hear me playing on piano instead, a rare event! We turn up heat withLutosławski's Five Dance Preludes, one of my favorite pieces to perform, and finish with a wild and furiously fast rendition ofBrahms' Rondo all Zingarese.
