Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

As gifted a pianist as Prokofiev, and a composer whom Rachmaninoff rated more highly than himself, Nicolai Medtner has long been neglected. This CD gives us a chance to rediscover the last of the great Romantics, a worthy heir to Chopin and Brahms who celebrated the great poets, both Russian and German, faithful to the double culture of his origins. Seventeen of his finest songs are accompanied here by eight Skazki, literally 'tales' for piano - songs without words. The immensely popular pianist Boris Berezovsky is joined by soprano Yana Ivanilova and bassbaritone Vassily Savenko on this lovely disc, which is one to treasure.
