Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis:
The Complete Piano Music, vol. 5

Rokas Zubovas, Piano

Celestial Harmonies, 13286-2, 2010

The fifth and final compact disk in the series echoes the structural principle of the first CD: there are compositions, representing various periods of Ciurlionis' works grouped together, and each of these groups are separated by a fugue. The return to the original organizational principle was implemented to recognize the contribution of Nikolaus Lahusen and represents an attempt to unify the whole five-CD cycle. Therefore the fugues on this CD, separate here five canons and a set of variations in D major, composed in Warsaw between 1897-1898, miniatures composed in Leipzig in 1902, miniatures composed in Druskininkai and Warsaw in 1906-1907, and the late preludes and other pieces composed in Druskininkai in 1909.
