When Yevgeny Kutik''s family emigrated from Russia in 1990 they had to leave behind most of their possessions. They arrived in the United States with just two suitcases. At his mother's insistence, one of the suitcases was filled with sheet music from the family's collection.
As a young man Yevgeny became curious enough to explore the contents that suitcase. What he found were some fairly well-known compositions while many others were works he had never seen or heard. The works were miniatures that told compelling stories of the character of Russian folklore, fantasy, and poetry.
