Notes & Reviews:

APR continues its comprehensive survey of the great pianists active in Russia during the Soviet era with these first two releases devoted to the Igumnov School. A true Romantic, Konstantin Igumnov (1873-1948) was the oldest and the least known of the three great teachers of this period, the others being Neuhaus and Goldenweiser. An exact contemporary and friend of Rachmaninov, here he performs a recital which includes Schumann's 'Kreisleriana' and Tchaikovsky's 'The Seasons'. A child prodigy, his pupil Yakov Flier (1912-1977) is heard in the Chopin 'Sonata No.2' and the world première recording of Dmitri Kabalevsky's 'Preludes Op.38'.
