Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Yulia Chaplina presents a virtousic recital of works by four famed Russian composers of the 19th and 20th centuries. In addition to the Rachmaninov "Corelli Variations", the Gubaidulina "Chaconne" and the dazzling and technically demanding Rachmaninov and Scriabin piano sonatas are two Tchaikovsky encore pieces performed here in arrangements by noted Russian pianist Mikhail Pletnev. Ms. Chaplina's connections to this music run deep; she is, as is said, "to the manor born".

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
At only 26 years, Russian born and trained Yulia Chaplina brings to her playing more than a lifetime of acquaintance with this music. Her mother, also a concert pianist and professor, was playing recitals until shortly before Yulia was born, so she can claim to being aware, at some level, of Russian piano music before birth. Chaplina's interpretation is right along the lines of most other pianists. The Corelli Variations are also in a class with other very good performances. I would go out of my way and pay to see her play these works in concert. All told this is an outstanding disc and one I'll return to often.
