Notes & Reviews:

This recording of various piano works by Rachmaninov, Scriabin, and Prokofiev, played by Konrad Skolarski, has received rave reviews all throughout Europe.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The heart of Skolarski's program is quite inventive: two large scale piano sonatas composed within a year of each other by two of Russia's greatest composers in the 20th Century. And they are both second piano sonatas. And both are favorites of mine. The excellent performances make this an essential release. Skolarski, a pianist in his early 30s, has an impressive biography, and the maturity of his interpretations serves the music very well. He finds some new voices here and there in the sonata. He has all the technique and sensibilities to put together a memorable recital - one that I shall return to often. The sound is also quite good, as are the notes.
