Notes & Reviews:

Yakov Zak was one of the greatest names in Soviet piano performing and teaching but remained little known abroad. A student of Heinrich Neuhaus, his vast repertoire concentrated on Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin and Brahms. Along with Emil Gilels, Zak was a staunch defender of Prokofiev. Endowed with Olympian technique and a clear, solid sense of form, he remains a model, a humanist whose current discography is amazingly meager. He died of a heart attack in 1976 shortly after a brutal police interrogation.
