Pianist and composer, Emile Naoumoff started his concert career at an early age. The child-prodigy demonstrated his great talent and maturity not only as a performer but also with his very first attempts in composing. His musical formation took place in Paris, where he began his studies at the beginning of the 1970s. Mr. Naoumoff graduated from the Paris Conservatoire as a pupil of Nadia Boulanger, one of the greatest ladies in world music. Later his performing and creative careers developed in parallel. This CD includes Mr. Naumoff's piano transcription of Tchaikovsky's overture-fantasy Romeo and Juliet. The complete programme - recorded live at a concert in Paris - presents the pianist as a master of sound-production, a musician of keen sensitivity and brilliant technique in outlining the essential features of the styles of the four Russian composers.

Recorded Live on the 1st March 1989 in Champs-Elysees Theatre, Paris
