Performed by Vardo Rumessen, piano

This is a very extensive selection, and what I like about it is the variety of compositions, which range from Nocturnes to Mazurkas, to Waltzes.

Here, by another composer, is the Prelude No. 23 in B- Allegretto, by Mart Saar, composed in 1918-1927 (in memoriam of C. Debussy). Performed by Vardo Rumessen
