Notes & Reviews:
Rodion Shchedrin embarked on a composing career at the dawn of the second half of the 20th century, and since then has been actively creative. Shchedrin is the happy owner of a gift that combines a topical music language with traditional elements of Russian music culture, which let him easily fit in with the global music space and, at the same time, remain an artist with strongly pronounced national attributes of style. While Shchedrin has created remarkable works in virtually all music genres, his relations with piano music are special. A student of the famous professor Yakov Flier, who was a brilliant soloist and teacher, Shchedrin continues the glorious traditions of the Russian school. His concert performances and recordings of his own works have always been bright events, and have attracted the attention of thousands of music lovers.
