Maxim Rysanov; Ashley Wass

Schubert, Desyatnikov, Akhunov and Tabakova


  • Maxim Rysanov viola
  • Ashley Wass piano

Leonid Desyatnikov’s chamber compositions include the dream-like Wie der alte Leiermann, written for Gidon Kremer in 1996, a stark response to the chill of Schubert’s Winterreise.

Maxim Rysanov also performs Dobrinka Tabakova’s Suite in Jazz Style, which he premièred in 2009, together with his own arrangement of Schubert’s delightful Sonatina in G minor D408 and Sergey Akhunov’s reimagining of the Romantic composer’s song ‘Erlkönig’.
