Notes & Reviews:

Somewhat unusually for a pianist-composer of his calibre, Taneyev wrote few works for that instrument alone, although each establishes its own memorable mood. The 'Violin Sonata', subtitled "Of medium difficulty", belongs to his mature compositional period and is notable for its blend of technical virtuosity and meditative inwardness. The 'Theme and Variations' pays tribute to Taneyev's teacher and colleague Tchaikovsky. Several of the solo piano pieces here receive their world premiere recordings here.

"This is a thoroughly winning disc. The more of Taneyev’s music I hear, the more I think he has been undeservedly eclipsed by the very dilettantes he despised. He wasn’t a Russian nationalist in the mold of the "Mighty Handful," but his music may actually be better crafted than theirs; and to me at least, it’s more appealing than some of his more renowned students. Ivan Peshkov is wonderful in the two violin works, and Olga Slovieva, as both soloist and accompanist, is one of the best advocates Taneyev has. Urgently recommended."-Fanfare
