Album review

The guitar is a very popular instrument in Russia. But, oddly enough, guitarists who play good instrumental music can be counted on fingers of one hand (“good” music in this case means tuneful , meditative, romantic music performed in a virtuoso way in finger technique, which is rarely used today but which brings heartfulness into the music).
