Notes & Reviews:

Onyx is proud to announce the debut release on the label by the legendary virtuoso and poet of the keyboard Nikolai Demidenko. Recognized as one of the great Chopin players of our time, this is his first recording of the Preludes. Bryce Morrison in Gramophone magazine praised his last Chopin recital disc by saying, "Demidenko’s razor-sharp articulation and immaculate dexterity are complemented by the finest musical grace and individuality" (Editor’s Choice, 2007).

Gramophone Magazine
At his best, Demidenko is a dazzling pianist... the Preludes... in his hands become a confection of enormous scope and variety... he imbues the swift numbers with a terrific urgency and excitement... and captures the individual moods... as well as Pires does in her vividly etched set.

The Guardian
He's by no means the first pianist to pull away from the well-worn idea of Chopin as the archetypal Romantic dreamer. But there's austerity here, an emotional directness and a willingness to explore the music's percussive, rhythmic potential rather than its lyricism, all of which make Chopin sound startlingly new.
