Alexandre Dossin Records Dmitry Kabalevsky’s Piano Music

January 6, 2008

Alexandre Dossin, recipient of numerous piano competition awards, pedagogue and Naxos artist, recently recorded three solo piano opuses - 24 Preludes Op. 38, 6 Preludes and Fugues Op. 61; 4 Preludes Op. 5 - by Dmitry Kabalevsky (1904 - 1987).

Kabalevsky, was a founding and life-long member of the Union of Soviet Composers from 1932. His music is determinedly tonal and reflective of the Romantic era which immediately preceded him. He composed many works, especially for piano, for study by children.

The three works recorded were composed over a period of thirty years, and the centre-piece work, the 24 Preludes, dedicated to his composition teacher Nikolai Myaskovsky, has as its basis of influence Russian folksongs that were collected and compiled by Rimsky-Korsakov.

The sessions took place from December 10 to 12 at the Beall Concert Hall, University of Oregon, United States. Alexandre Dossin and Lance Miller were the producers. The sound engineer was Lance Miller.
