Notes & Reviews:

This first volume of Alexander Tcherepnin's extensive list of works for piano takes us from some of his earliest works as a precocious Russian teenager, through to significant and intensely expressive compositions. From the vitally youthful picture stories of the Bagatelles, through the remarkable Sonatas to the exploratory late Ascension, each work is a gold mine of astoundingly inventive and distinctively individual craftsmanship. Giorgio Koukl is a pianist/ harpsichordist and composer based in Lugano, Switzerland. Born in Prague in 1953, and studied at the State Music School and Conservatory, before moving to Switzerland in 1968 and continuing his studies at the Conservatories of Zürich and Milan. Koukl's effortless technique and expertise with this fascinating repertoire make him a perfect advocate for this composer's remarkable music.

MusicWeb International
This is one of those discs that makes me want to shout with delight... A wonderful disc altogether!

Pizzicato
The Czech pianist Giorgio Koukl, the program plays this CD with a lot of commitment, very vivid colors, rich and gives Tcherepnin's music in all its freshness for life. Every single miniature and each set of the sonatas is characteristic in Tonfarbung, expression and tension.
