Notes & Reviews:

Alexander Korsantia is a force of nature. These live performances of this Russian Rubenstein competition winner show a red hot immediacy, excitement, and adrenalin usually absent in studio recordings. The terror of Prokofiev's War Sonatas, the orchestral colors of Stravinsky's Firebird and the tongue-in-cheek of the Circus Polka and Tango: all these brilliant performances evoke the visceral emotions of a unique concert experience.
