Playlist with a Story

Best of 2016 from Alex Nikiforov

Every year, I make ‘the best of’ playlist. These are the tracks that you told me you particularly liked! Normally, I play it in the multiple locations where I teach to celebrate the diversity of our community and the way we get inspired by each other. This year, I could not play it anywhere as I was on sabbatical and wasn’t teaching. So, publishing the playlist here is the only way I can offer the Best of 2016!

As usual, many of these tracks found me through my colleagues. I would like to thank Irina Sozdana (St Petersburg), Sereja Zimakov (Moscow), Inna Gulyaeva (Moscow) and Peter Wilberforce (Paris) for sharing their wonderful favourite music!
