Ossip Gabrilowitsch (1878-1936), was an
extraordinary pianist and composer. He studied piano
with Anton Rubinstein and Theodore Leschetizky, and
composition with Lyadov and Glazunov. Gabrilowitsch
recorded the Bourrée, among his favourite encore
pieces, in New York in 1925 but the recording was
never commercially released during his lifetime.
Played with verve and joy, the Bourrée comes alive in
