Lyadov's piano music series is completed

Volumes Three & Four of Complete Anatoly Lyadov Piano Works are released by Northern Flowers label (distributed by Alto). Voumes 4 contains few pieces and sketches, never recorded before.

Thus, Olga Solovieva completed the project started in far 2004.

Now the series is the mostly complete set of Anatoly Lyadov's works composed for one pianist.

And very important is that Olga Solovieva is the pianist of Russian piano school tradition: her Professor at the Gnessins Academy was Leonid Blok, the pupil of Alexander Goldenweiser (who was the pupil of Alexander Ziloti, close friend of Lyadov).
