Alexander Nesterov is a prominent teacher and pianist who brought up a real constellation of high class musicians, Honoured master of arts of Russia, chairman of S-Petersburg music foundation, vice-president of Glinka foundation.
The 6 preludes cycle is a album of music sketcnes, concentrated and compact, written in the complex modern musical style. They dash from nowhere to nowhere with a lighting speed, this is why they better be played as a cycle, which lends some completeness to the unstable fantasy-like music constructions.
Laconic and compressed still they require concentration on each colour, each turn of the music tale.
Undoubtedly this cycle of preludes will benefit any concert pianist.
