Irina Kulikova - “Reminiscences of Russia - NAXOS Any new recording by the great Irina Kulikova is cause for celebration. Her latest project is particularly intriguing, as it is comprised of guitar music by three rarely heard contemporary Russian composers, Konstantin Vassiliev, Sergey Rudnev, and Viktor Koslov. The guitar just may be the ultimate chamber music instrument, so it is hardly surprising to find that, as in Paris, London, Vienna and Berlin, by the late 18th century, it had found favor in the parlors and salons of St. Petersburg. What may be surprising is how well all three of these young composers have incorporated modern harmonic elements with traditional folkloric melodies. The result is an often transcendent, dream-like listening experience. As always, Ms. Kulikova’s playing displays such a depth of understanding and emotional commitment that one can sometimes overlook her total mastery of the guitar and the ease with which she is able to take on even the most technically difficult musical passages. In an age of overhype, it becomes harder and harder for words to hold on to their meaning; Irina Kulikova’s “Reminiscences of Russia” goes a long way toward rescuing the original definitions of beauty and greatness. Simply stated, it is a beautiful recording by a great musician. A must-have. Highest possible recommendation 10 out of 10 Oscar O. Veterano
