'In many ways the early Baroque composer Heinrich Biber represents a new path in history as one of the greatest musical innovators: Battalia à 10 is one of the first pieces of program music ever written. This creative maverick paved the way for future composers, most notably Bach, whose solo instrumental works stand firmly on Biber's shoulders.

Tchaikovsky's death in 1893 marked somewhat of a turning point in Russian music – Arensky's neglected masterpiece is dedicated to his close friend's memory, and touchingly quotes the fifth of Tchaikovsky's Sixteen Songs for Children, Op. 54.'
