Review on Liadov CD-set in American Record Guide

Very enthusiastic and positive review on double-CD with Vol.1 & Vol.2 of "Anatoly Liadov complete piano music" published in American Record Guide.

James Harrington writes: "Solovieva gives an absolutely gorgeous performance...There are so many tuneful works that all exude what I have come to think of as Russian musical characteristics that I could close my eyes and point at a random track and it would be a perfect example. So much of this is really good that one wonders why it is almost unknown. Fortunately, given performances like this, we can enjoyably explore Liadov’s output and get to know it much better."
