"This great but neglected treasury of Russian guitar music is nothing less than an alternative universe for today's standard classical guitar repertoire. Yet it contains a paradox: It barely relates to that magic world of 'Russian music' that Western audiences are often eager to consume, searching for the depths of the mysterious Russian soul. Instead, the Russian guitar repertoire exists by itself, waiting to be discovered and embraced by conservatories and concert performers while capturing new listeners in the process. In a certain way, this album is an attempt to reinvent history. We took the alliance of classical Russian composers known as 'The Might Handful' or 'The Five' and built a musical tribute to them with our quartet of four Russian seven-string guitars. We did this in the spirit of the Russian guitar tradition, observing the stylistic peculiarities of the first half of the 19th century"--Container insert.
