Soprano Claire Booth and pianist Christopher Glynn follow their critically acclaimed collaborations Percy Grainger: Folk Music and Edvard Grieg: Lyric Music with Modest Mussorgsky: Unorthodox Music, interspersing a selection of the Russian composer’s under-represented songs with solo piano works.

First Percy Grainger: Folk Music, then Edvard Grieg: Lyric Music, and now Modest Mussorgsky: Unorthodox Music a logical sequence in soprano Claire Booth’s and pianist Christopher Glynn’s growing AVIE discography, interspersing a selection of under-represented songs with solo piano works by this most individual and idiosyncratic of all Russian composers.

Claire and Chris approach Modest Mussorgsky: Unorthodox Music in the spirit of a storyteller, tracing an arc of life from innocence to experience that is arranged across a prologue and four “scenes” Nursery, Youthful Years, Marriage and Loneliness taking their cue from the colourful tableaux of the composer’s operas. Individual numbers from the great song cycles Youthful Years, Nursery, Sunless, and Songs and Dances of Death are juxtaposed with works from Mussorgsky’s more unorthodox output, all delivered by Claire and Chris with disarming affect.
