Notes & Reviews:

Tatiana Nikolayeva (1924-1993) is remembered mainly as a Bach player and also as the definitive performer of Shostakovich's 'Preludes & Fugues', which the composer dedicated to her. This CD presents two recording premieres - the first ever recording of the Tchaikovsky 'Concert Fantasy' and the first recording of the original version of Tchaikovsky's second concerto. Here Nikolayeva reveals that not only was she an intellectual pianist but also a virtuoso who could 'barnstorm' with the best of them.
