It's comprised of 16 classical pieces from six composers, including Aaron Copland's Piano Sonata composed in 1939, which reflects Copland's fear of WW II, and ends with beautiful bells that "announce the hope for peace," says Janis. Other featured composers: Chopin, de Falla, Liszt, Mozart and Schumann.

The 90-year-old is still creating music, including for his Broadway-bound "Silver Skates" musical. He and Naxos Records have just signed a worldwide distribution agreement.
Live from Leningrad is the second in a series of Janis' previously unreleased recordings of live performances. He issued Byron Janis Live on Tour, Vol.1 this past fall.

"I was at first dismayed that this concert recording had been made and sold in the USSR without my knowledge. But now, I am grateful a unique moment in musical history was captured," added Janis, who was appointed our country's first Cultural Ambassador to Russia.
