This disc of pieces played by the pianist Polina Osetinskaya brings together the music of Nino Rota and Leonid Desyatnikov. What these composers have in common is not just that they lived in the 20th century but the way their works challenges what academic music had become. Neither Rota or Desyatnikov has ever been part of any musical movement and they have written no theoretical tracts, as was all the rage in the 20th century, but we can still see their music as a riposte to contemporary isolationism, arrogance and fear of the listener.
