Notes & Reviews:

In September 2010, a rapt audience in Glasgow’s City Halls witnessed the extraordinary emergence of a 23-year-old pianist from Kazakhstan. Oxana Shevchenko revealed an extraordinary command of structure, rhythmic dynamism, and sheer pianistic exuberance in her performance. She seized the moment with unbridled musical commitment and drive, and carried away the first prize with unanimous approval from the distinguished international jury. Just three days after her triumph in the concerto final, Shevchenko returned to the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, the setting of the first two rounds of the competition, to record a varied recital program for Delphian as part of her first prize. Her chosen program represents some of the highlights of her competition repertoire, and showcases the remarkable musical and pianistic qualities that she demonstrated during the competition. Works by Mozart, Liszt, Shostakovich, and Ravel feature on Oxana’s debut disc in a program full of highly pictorial musical genres.
