On the one hand her recordings of his 24 preludes and fugues for solo guitar and their publication by Editions Margaux can't come soon enough.  On the other hand, we don't want to rsuh a project like this that is, so far as I know, unprecedented in the history of the instrument, a contrapuntal cycle composed for the guitar by an guitarist (give or take focal dystonia).  For now, Selyutina does a nice job with Koshkin's most famous waltz.
