Notes & Reviews:

A fascinating programme of three variations cycles from different style periods. The Beethoven Eroica variations, The Piano Variations by Aaron Copland and The Chopin Variations by Sergei Rachmaninoff. This is the second release on Piano Classics by Georgian pianist Alexander Korsantia, presently residing in Boston, USA. His first disc was devoted to Prokofiev and Stravinsky.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Korsantia, a Professor of Piano at the New England Conservatory, was born and trained in Tbilisi, Georgia before he moved to the West in 1992. Based on this most enjoyable release, he is a major talent that I expect to hear from a lot more in the coming years. I was also impressed with his teaching, which I found documented online in some master classes. He has won some competitions and performed world-wide both in recital and with orchestras. I hope this disc helps to gain him more recognition and enhances his career. There is plenty of rhythmic, dynamic, and textural variety - all played with aplomb by Korsantia. With great piano sound and excellent booklet notes, this is a winning release.
