Sergei Nakariakov is in my opinion the greatest Classical solo trumpet player alive. When I first heard this CD, I had just been listening to his CD 'No Limit'(highly recomended), and I was expecting that same dark and haunting sound that many of his other CDs had. At first I was a little dissapointed, because many of the songs in this CD have a much brighter and livelier sound. But as I listened more to this CD, I began to appreciate the incredible musical and emotional depth that this CD had. His technical ability and musicality is truly incredible. I highly recommend this CD.
