Notes & Reviews:

Tzimon Barto is recognized as one of the foremost American pianists of his generation. His new double-CD for Ondine features Paganini variations by three composers, Liszt, Brahms and Lutoslawski, and the popular Paganini Rhapsody Rachmaninov, on which Christoph Eschenbach conducts the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra. The Schlewig-Holstein Festival Orchestra was founded by Leonard Bernstein in 1987.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The first disc presents the familiar Paganini variations by Liszt and Brahms for solo piano along with a short set by Lutoslawski for two pianos (Tzimon Barto plays both parts). The second disc contains a performance of Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with Christoph Eschenbach conducting the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra. The Lutoslawski dates from the earliest period of that composer's activities. Dazzling and fascinating, it is a fine showpiece. The Rachmaninoff is in turns effervescent, longing, and dancing. In general, the performance is very fine, and Barto sounds as good as anywhere else on these discs.
