Troika is an all-Russian Pentatone release featuring sonatas by Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff, and Prokofiev, along with new arrangements of Russian-themed music from Paul McCartney to Pussy Riot. The cello/piano duo Matt Haimovitz and Christopher O'Riley perform a substantial and creative program based on repression of artists. WBAA Music Director John Clare spoke to Haimovitz and O'Riley about their arrangements, politics, and learning repertoire for the first time.
