Notes & Reviews:

  • Anatoly Alexander (1888-1982) is one of the forgotten figures of the Russian school of pianism.
  • Alexandrov's fourteen sonatas and much else for piano is of an attractive late-Romantic style that owes much to his teacher and friend Nikolai Medtner.
  • This first volume in the first-ever survey of his piano music presents a conspectus of works composed between 1939 and 1962, many of them first recordings.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
As with all of the recent Toccata discs that have come my way, the sound is top notch and the booklet is well written and informative. Kyung-Ah Noh, a 32-year-old Korean, is new to me. She has a convincing way with this music and I would seek out future recordings she might make of any music by the Russians mentioned in this review. I especially look forward to more in this series.
