PS I did use Babel Fish to translate this article but found some of the translation too, too amusing

I wonder if their 'protegee,' Alina Somova, will join them? In the brand-new (Jan '09 realease) DVD from Japan, Classical Variations, Vol 3, Somova is exclusively coached by Chenchikova, who also contributes a lengthy interview to the DVD, praising her charge to the hilt. I cannot imagine those two away from each other.
