A winner of many awards, the Russian pianist Anna Alexeyev has performed around the world with some of the most prestigious orchestras. In 1995 she premiered Paul McCartney’s first solo piano piece entitled “A Leaf”, which was later released on CD. This new recording features a unique combination of the piano music of Alexander Scriabin and Nikolai Roslavets.

The pairing of these two composers may appear to be a novel idea, but it is long overdue and illustrates a connection between their compositions that has been overlooked. Scriabin and Roslavets were contemporaries, but their lives could not have been more different. Scriabin was born into an aristocratic Moscow family, had access from a young age to the best formal music training available, and enjoyed recognition as a brilliant concert pianist and innovative composer during his lifetime. Roslavets came from a rural background outside of Russia proper, taught himself to play the violin and then obtained enough formal training to enter the Moscow Conservatory at the age of 21. Although as a composer he soon fell into political disfavour and his music was rarely performed during his lifetime, since the collapse of the Soviet Union his work has begun to gain recognition.

Anya Alexeyev studied at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory and at the Royal College of Music in London. Her UK concerto appearances include the BBC Philharmonic, RPO, Philharmonia, RSNO, CBSO, BSO ECO, LMP and BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
