Alexei Lubimov is one of the most admired pianists of his generation, particularly for his exploration of rarely-played repertoire on period instruments. Together with his disciple, harpsichordist and pianist Olga Pashchenko, a rising star of the new generation, and accompanied by the musicians of the Finnish Baroque Orchestra, they embark on a voyage of discovery into the music of Czech composer Jan Ladislav Dussek (1760-1812), with world premiere recordings on period instruments of his Concerto for Two Pianos and Notturno concertant.A trailblazing early romantic composer, Dussek created an innovative piano music style marked by a harmonic richness and intense emotional expressivity.

"Dussek’s 1806 Concerto for Two Pianos is a first-rate piece, as boldly original as Beethoven and possessing the revolutionary spirit of its age. Playing reproduction fortepianos, Lubimov and Pashchenko give a dazzling performance with the Finnish Baroque Orchestra. Pashchenko also features in the beautifully crafted Piano Quintet (1799), while Lubimov, the violinist Sirkka-Liisa Kaakinen-Pilch and the horn player Tommi Hyytinen offer the Notturno Concertant"
The Sunday Times
"The performances of the two chamber works (Pashchenko plays the quintet, Lubimov the Notturno) are airy and athletic, making the best possible case for Dussek’s appealing music, with its roots in 18th-century classicism, but with occasional anticipations of the Romanticism to come."
