In creating these arrangements, for our premier album, “Fantasy for Two”, we chose melodies serendipitously, drawing from the entire collection of world music. Each fantasy selected might have many composers, or could even be based on a traditional melody where the original composer is unknown. And although “Fantasy for Two” consists of various pieces of music, the whole album can be thought of as one fantasy on popular themes.
A. Tsygankov – Introduction and Czardas
N. Paganini – Carnival of Venice
N. Rimsky-Korsakov – Flight of the Bumblebee
S. Orekhov – A. Kusner – Variations on the Russian romance The Night is Bright

I Met You
Fantasy on Lara’s Theme from Doctor Zhivago
