Notes & Reviews:

Friedrich Gulda and Glenn Gould were two of the most controversial and fascinating pianists of the 20th century. Although justifiably famous for their musical abilities, they were also noted for their unique personalities. Both were notorious for their eccentricities, and their original compositions for piano refl ect their specific innermost urges and interests. For Gulda, jazz was the inspiration for his cycle Play Piano Play while for Gould, his Sonata drew its inspiration from the great masters of polyphony and the Second Viennese School. Sasha Grynyuk, born in Ukraine, studied at the Guildhall School for Music and won its prestigious Gold Medal. Subsequently he was named 'Rising Star' by the BBC Music Magazine, and he received the Guildhall's Wigmore Prize. Charles Rosen found him to be, "an impressive artist with a remarkable and unfailing musicality, always moving with the most natural, electrifying and satisfying interpretations."
