Andre Boucourechliev - FR - Ducretet Thomson 270 C 022 S/C Grey Label. Andre Boucourechliev was a French pianist of Bulgarian origin who devoted himself almost exclusively to contemporary music. This is a rare recording from the early years of his career, a work of the late romantic period, although Mussorgsky was an innovator of Russian music in the late romantic period. He strove for an exclusively Russian musical identity, often with a deliberate challenge to the established conventions of Western music. - Saulo Zucchello
