Following the critical acclaim given to the recent release of music by Sergei Bortkiewicz by Italian pianist Alfonso Soldano (Volume 12 of the Russian Piano series), we have invited Soldano to make two more discs. While currently busy with his recording of music by Castelnuovo-Tedesco to be released in the late summer, Soldano will record later this year albums of piano works by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov.
Another addition to the series will include the debut recording by dynamic and brilliant Italian pianist Stefania Argentieri in a program of works by Prokofiev.
