On this CD, three pieces from the cycle "Reminiscences of the Dear Place" op. 42 by Peter Tchaikovsky are represented ("Meditation", "Scherzo", and "Melody"), as well as "Melancholy Serenade" op. 26 for violin and orchestra transcribed by the author for violin and piano and "Waltz-Scherzo" (transcribed by V.Besekirsky) that were performed in the concert as a whole cycle.
The transcriptions of the famous works by Tchaikovsky - ouverture Romeo and Juliet and fragments from the ballet "The Nutcracker" were made by the composer, professor Aida Isakova in 1997. In these pieces, the classical traditions of transcription are developed but they also have some specific features; the pieces are written for an ensemble of two instruments and for concrete soloists; the music of the transcriptions is a full, instrumentally elaborate version of the authors' scores.
Maxim Fedotov and Galina Petrova confess that, while performing these pieces, they don't pursue the aim of competing with the orchestra; the goal is to express their attitude to the great compositions by the means of their own beloved instruments.
