• Prayer


    With Arkady Shilkloper, French and flugelhorn, and Starostin, voice and percussion, this album is a follow-up of “Folk ” with the same brilliant combination of Jazz and Russian-Moldavian-Romanian Folk elements as well as the guest musicians from the South Siberian republic of Tuva (overtone and throat singing) and a Russian Folk ensemble.

  • The first CD that documents the Moscow Art Trio’s live work. It contains the recording of an inspired concert on the NDR radio studio in Hamburg in 1996.

  • This album is a unique collaboration of the Bulgarian Voices Angelite with Huun-Huur-Tu and Sergey Starostin & Mikhail Alperin (Moscow Art Trio). 

  • The album is a continuation of the Moscow Art Trio’s aesthetic concept, which provides for equal participation of Arkady Shilkloper, a horn player with a background in classical music, the folk singer and clarinetist Sergey Starostin, and Alperin, who refers to himself as “a kind of improvising pianist”. Together they allow for the sense of pleasure, humor and technical brilliance to come into our ears.

  • Folk Dreams


    The listener can enjoy here an impressive combination between Jazz and Russian-Moldavian-Hungarian folk elements, with guest musicians from the South-Siberian Tuva as well as a Russian folk choir (Russkaja Pesnja).

  • Portrait


    This album is a presentation of several projects by Mikhail Alperin. Here the listener can enjoy music from different ensembles and line-ups: from piano solo to brass quintet, from folk-choir to violin, recorded live and in studios in Europe and USA. However, the idea of the album is far from putting together a show-sampler or a loose collection of compositions. 

  • Mountain Tale

    The CD marks the second collaboration of Angelite with Huun-Huur-Tu and Mikhail Alperin. The latter’s arrangements leads listeners on a journey of discovery through similarities and differences of Russian, Bulgarian and Tuvan folklore, culminating in the fusion presented on this CD.
  • The album gathers the influences of Asian and rap music. All these are drawn together by the thread of the multi-talented Norwegian singer, Eli Kristin Hovdsveen Hagen. The traces of Norwegian musical ideas have developed gradually – more or less unconsciously, but naturally – in the course of Alperin’s several years of living in Norway.

  • Russian Soul


    This series of initially four CDs provides us with new windows onto the music of our neighbours to the east. No mere rehashing of balalaika and other clichés, it tunes us into a wide range of temperaments and brings us closer to little-known musical cultures of the eastern world. Old melodies and new songs, all of them interpreted by outstanding musicians from the respective countries. A different mood prevails on each of the four CDs. From Russia we hear a hint of melancholy in music which moves us to the core. 

  • This album was recorded after a two year hiatus of the band due to the sickness of Mikhail Alperin. The CD contains no traditional songs. The lyrics are written by Sergey Starostin and the compositions by Mikhail Alperin. The German Concerto Magazine has reviewed the album by saying: “[…] An excellent one, a masterly extremely interesting musical experience.”
