Musical Opinion

Two important CDs of mid-20 th century Soviet piano music almost on a par with Shostakovich and Prokofiev, admirably played by this splendidly gifted pianist, whose championing of unknown piano music of this era has brought extraordinary revelations. So it is here – at this stage in his career, the composer had much of value to say, although the first movement of No. 6 shows the composer tending to lose his individuality. Virtually flawless playing and recording.
