Notes & Reviews:

In April 1885, pianist Pavel Pabst left his home in Moscow for St. Petersburg to give the premiere of his first orchestral composition, a Piano Concerto. However, the Concerto received a poor reception and when Pabst returned to Moscow for a second performance conducted by Alexander Siloti, worse was to come. The critics there branded the work "not in the tradition of Russian composition" and called the last movement "frivolous." It was all too depressing for Pabst, still only 31 years old, who chose to concentrate on his teaching and never composed for the orchestra again. Now, Pabst's sole orchestral composition lives on through the talent of two young musicians: British conductor Marius Stravinsky, and Greek concert pianist Panagiotis Trochopoulos.
