Notes & Reviews:

"...[Roslavets'] unique style, incorporating a dense chromaticism that is reminiscent of late Scriabin, involves the use of six to eight (or more) note chords, which he called 'synthetic chords,' The language pushes to the edge of atonality but does not quite cross the line...For aficionados of the fin-de-siecle, pre-atonal world of late Wagner, Mahler, early Schoenberg and Berg, Zemlinsky, Scriabin, and so on, Roslavets fills a vital position." -Burwasser, Fanfare

'Hamelin's playing remarkably demonstrates a phenomenal set of fingers and a hyper-accurate ear. Variable but exotic and intriguing music, immaculately played' (Classic CD)

'Roslavets is ideally served by Hamelin who relishes the elaboration and sorts it out with his customary acuteness of ear for quality and balance of sound' (BBC Record Review)

'This finely recorded recital confirms Hamelin's place as one of the most enterprising and virtuosic performers of our day' (Gramophone)

'Canadian super-pianist Marc-André Hamelin captures their individuality and multilayered complexity with superb aplomb' (The Irish Times)

'Marc-André Hamelin, the thinkers' virtuoso, has restored a major composer to history. Wonderful music ... [the] performances are a miracle of dexterity and understatement' (Soundscapes, Australia)

'Roslavets is a most compelling musical presence. For those interested in digging beneath the surface of 20th-century Russian culture, musical and social, grab this disc' (American Record Guide)
