Judith Jáuregui is one of the main figures of the current cream of Spanish piano. Sumptuous sound, decisive phrasing and a versatility of styles are always guaranteed with her. In this album she takes us to the world of Slavic piano, perhaps approachable through religious nuances: the evocation of Russian orthodox Christianity in Scriabin and Central European Catholicism in Chopin and Szymanowski.

Interview for Diario de Sevilla, by Pablo J. Vayón
At the beginning of his career, nothing suggested that pianist and composer Alexander Scriabin (Moscow, 1872-1915) would end up occupying such an exceptional place in the pantheon of musical extravagance. A great piano virtuoso, his initial works liaise easily with the Romanticism of Chopin and Liszt, but towards the end of the XIXth century his music began to change, becoming more mysterious and morbid.

At this stage, to talk about crisis in the music album sales industry is redundant.
