Notes & Reviews:

This personal selection by award-winning pianist Konstantin Scherbakov, featuring such beautiful melodies as the Bach/Siloti Prelude in E minor, Lyadov Prelude Op.11, no.1, and the Mozart/Thalberg Lacrimosa from the Requiem, celebrates the simple beauty of excellent music. Music that is mutually pleasing to both the audience and the performer, Scherbakov's selections represent a commitment to the love of music for music's sake, and the result is an incredibly accessible album for both performer and listener.

Allmusic.com
This recording... plays to the strengths of this unorthodox Russian pianist: it's something that the Romantic performers [Scherbakov] idolizes would have tried, just to be daring, and it's a genuinely unusual release.

BBC Music Magazine
Konstantin Scherbakov... takes us on a lovingly-felt journey through songs without words, aided by crystalline sound combining treble-focused warmth with a reverberant ambience that gives his singing lines superb... this is an enchanting disc.

Fanfare
a very enjoyable recital.

Ariama.com
Scherbakov's beautifully shaped performance of the Friedman transcription of Gluck's Dance of the Blessed Spirits... has a Chopin-like melancholy... There's power in Scherbakov's playing too. ... there's so much excellent playing here. This is strongly recommended.
