Album Notes
The music of George A. Rubissow recalls the ecstatic Romanticism of Frederic Chopin and Alexander Scriabin, while the melodic content evokes Ukrainian and Russian folk melodies, all viewed from the perspective of the 20th Century.
In this set of Nocturnes for Piano, modal language is combined with melodic declarations which recall the old world, yet the dissonance and complex rhythms sound contemporary.

Rubissow, born in in 1897, was a pianist/composer, writer, engineer, and philosopher. He emigrated from the Ukraine at a young age, then lived in Paris and New York City, where he published his piano works and his philosophical novel "The House of Life".
His truly original and powerful music favors expressive melodies, minor keys and dark sonorities.
