Other favorite Russian piano works featured in this exceptional compilation include music by Arensky, Borodin, Glinka, Rimsky-Korsakov, and other masters. Among them are such all-time favorites as Rubinstein's lovely "Melody in F," Prokofiev's blazing Toccata, Scriabin's famous Nocturne for Left Hand Alone, Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C Sharp Minor, Stravinsky's "Piano-Rag-music," and many more.
