Notes & Reviews:

Eminent Russian pianist DENIS MATSUEV presents his first recording with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Alan Gilbert, with Rachmaninoff's famous Piano Concerto No. 2 and Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, an album where two classical masters of the 20th century meet. Denis Matsuev has become one of the fastest rising stars on the international concert stage since his triumphant victory at the 11th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1998 and has quickly established himself as one of the most sought-after pianists of his generation. He has developed into one of the most prominent pianists of the Russian School and appears regularly with leading orchestras around the world including the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Matsuev is the Musical Ambassador to the Sergei Rachmaninoff Foundation and his recording of Piano Concerto No. 2 is in celebration of the 140th anniversary of the composer's birth.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013
If you've got it, flaunt it. And Denis Matsuev has certainly got 'it' - whatever that magic, unteachable ingredient is - and is not afraid to flaunt it...In tandem with Matsuev's fabulous articulation is his beautifully nuanced playing, matched in the slow movement by the NYPO's superb first clarinet.
