Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The late Brahms piano works are truly a remarkable body of compositions. Russian pianist Mikhail Volchok, now on the faculty at the University of Maryland, infuses these works with both the delicacy and grandeur that they encompass.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Op.116 set much faster - about 11 minutes faster, so his recording has no difficulty in squeezing in the additional pieces. Fernandez, the more indulgent pianist, would only have some 18 minutes remaining to accommodate Op. 116. Given his slower and expressive playing style. Mikhail Volchok, a student of Yakov Zak, offers a more traditional approach. He is faster overall. The Rhapsody is a more measured affair, more to the classical mold, as is his playing in the Intermezzos.
