"Tchaikovsky's The Seasons has been on the Grigoryan family 'to do list' for 15 years," says Slava Grigoryan. "Many years ago I'd performed a few movements from The Seasons but you really need two guitars to cover the full dynamic range and detail, Leonard and I had been planning to record the complete set." The twelve-movement composition written for solo piano by the iconic Russian composer, has at last been arranged for two guitars by Edward Grigoryan for his sons Slava and Leonard Grigoryan, who are one of the world's leading guitar duos. "This guitar transition is a rare occurrence with Russian piano music, so I think when people hear this we might see it happening more and more," adds Slava, The stunning arrangement retains what makes it a masterpiece, while presenting it in a totally different setting and giving it a new voice, The Seasons movements characterise the twelve months of the year, and were written around the time Tchaikovsky was composing the ballet, Swan Lake.
