Notes & Reviews:

Together with two of Dmitri Shostakovich's superior works, his first piano concerto and the Chamber Symphony, op. 110a, lies Alfred Schnittke's (1934-98) Concerto for Piano and String Orchestra (1979) a work that marked a turning point in his career: it was followed by international recognition for a composer then under close Soviet authority observation. The piece is extremely coherent, very violent, but nevertheless basically tonal. "Mr. Kasman and conductor Emmanuel Leducq-Barome embrace Schnittke's confrontational idiom with open arms... A powerful disc..." - Classic Today
