Notes & Reviews:

Awarded a Choc Award by French music magazine Le Monde de la Musique for her "extraordinarily powerful and virtuosic playing," young Russian virtuoso Polina Leschenko is back with a highly anticipated all-Russian album! Starting with a stunning performance of Rachmaninov's second sonata, Polina continues with a moving rendition of the complete first cycles of the Forgotten Melodies - including the Reminiscenza Sonata - by romantic composer Nikolai Medtner. As encores, Polina invites the listener to discover two wonderful waltzes from Mischa Levitsky and a performance of Horowitz's Variations on Bizet's Carmen as you have never heard it before! Recorded in the world-renowned acoustic of La Chaux de Fonds, this is a must-have for any serious piano lover.
