'One is left marvelling at the range of effects obtainable and Susan Drake's expressiveness and fluency' (Gramophone)
Generally described as ‘the father of Russian music’, the Russian Mikhail Glinka (1804–1857) was of course the composer of much else besides harp music. These variations on a theme adapted from Mozart’s Don Giovanni (‘Là ci darem la mano’) are an early example of his work and were later transcribed by the composer for the piano.

Généralement décrit comme «le père de la musique russe», le russe Mikhail Glinka (1804–1857) était bien sûr compositeur de nombreuses autres œuvres outre les morceaux pour harpe. Ces variations sur un thème adapté du Don Giovanni de Mozart («Là ci darem la mano») sont un exemple précoce de son œuvre et furent plus tard transcrites pour le piano par le compositeur.

Allgemein angesehen als „der Vater der russischen Musik“ komponierte Mikhail Glinka (1804–1857) natürlich neben Harfenmusik vieles andere. Diese Variationen zu einem von Mozarts Don Giovanni adaptierten Thema („Là ci darem la mano“) sind ein frühes Beispiel seiner Arbeit und wurden später von ihm für das Klavier transkribiert.
