Notes & Reviews:

Nikolai Peyko (1916 - 95) is a major Russian composer completely unknown in the west. He is another composer who wrote nine symphonies, and much other orchestral music besides, but fell foul of the Soviet regime and was sidelined. His piano music shares Shostakovich's irony and Prokofiev's driving march-rhythms and playful good humor. This first CD of two in this complete recording of his piano music is the first time any of this music has been heard recorded on a western label.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Korostelyov and Dzhemesiuk play with conviction and technical assurance; Toccata's sonics are clear and strong. Let's hope for more from Peyko on CD - the rest of his piano oeuvre, to be sure.
