Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This live recording is being released 20 years after Konstantin Lifschitz's final concert at the Gnessin School. He played Bach's Goldberg Variations there as part of his school-leaving exams at age 17. He has often since performed the work in his piano recitals and has done so on all five continents. Today, one thing is more important to Lifschitz than before, and in which he feels the live recording of his Wu¨rzburg concert released here comes closest to what he wants. What is indispensable to him is to integrate properly all the repeats of the individual variations.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
There is plenty of variety of touch, and some subtly different ornamentations in this interpretation. I suspect that I would have very much enjoyed this concert as a one-time event. In a concert hall this might be very effective. The sound is first class. Excellent and perceptive program notes. Readers looking for a performance with plenty of virtuosity will not be disappointed.
