Michail Jefimowitsch Alperin (Ukrainian: Миха́йло Юхи́мович Альпе́рін; 7 November 1956 – 11 May 2018) was a Soviet-Norwegian jazz pianist, known as a key member of the Moscow Art Trio. Alperin was born in Kamianets-Podilskyi, Ukrainian SSR and educated in Khmelnytskyi, Bălți and Chișinău. In 1980, he formed one of the first jazz ensembles in Moldavian SSR. He moved to Moscow in the 1980s and founded the Moscow Art Trio with Arkady Shilkloper and folk singer Sergey Nikolaevich Starostin.
As Misha Alperin says, "The mind was inert, the ears alert, and the music born practically without revisions. Improvisation here is simply the paintbrush with the help of which you can be honest in the presence of the night. He remembered that this night marked the 21st anniversary of his father's death. And with this thought in mind he began to play; he had not set out to make an album, nor was there any thought of an audience in mind.
Recorded at home by Misha Alperin in February 1998.
