Mikhail Khodorkovsky receives his first classical gifts

Reading on Slipped Disc yesterday that the freed Russian oligarch had wanted nothing more in his jail years than to attend a classical concert, Toccata label owner Martin Anderson promptly sent a batch of new releases to his hotel in Berlin.

He chose an esoteric set, knowing that Khodorkovsky would listen with fresh ears.

·        Ashton Cello Sonatas Vol. 1

·        Ernst Violin Concerto, Concertino and Quartet

·        Facco Pensieri Adriarmonici Vol. 1

·        Martinů Early orchestral music

·        Nikolai Tcherepnin Piano music

·        Telemann Harmonischer Gottes-Dienst Vol. 5

Lovely gesture, Martin!

    Gesture’s lovely, but the choice seems so odd… Hurried to be a first gift? :)
