Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Russian pianist Mark Taratushkin combines early works of two of the most important composers from the first half of the 20th c. on this CD. These six works by Sergei Prokofiev and Bela Bartok illustrate their respective evolutionary thinking and use of new forms and ideas. Born in 1990 in Ukraine, Mr. Taratuskhin moved with his family to Moscow when aged 10 where he was accepted into the Central Music School for gifted children. Now resident in Berlin, he has performed as soloist and chamber musician in Switzerland, Spain, Israel, Italy, Greece, Germany and Russia.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The recital begins with Prokofieff's Sarcasms, played with great freedom, the pianist alert to every expressive nuance in these slippery and multifaceted pieces, explosive one moment, caressing in the next, so that I'm inclined to take this brooding music seriously; perhaps even the title is sarcastic. The morose and fitful expiration of the final Sarcasm mates well with Bartok's brisk and aggressive any of the three would make a brilliant encore to a recital. The Improvisations on Hungarian Peasant Songs follows, which start out sweet and tonal - certainly sweeter than anything heard so far. With Out Doors, written about the same time, the pianist's long-term strategy becomes clear, because now he's back to pieces played in strict tempo He holds to steady tempos in Prokofieff's Four Studies as well. Taratushkin ends his recital in the improvisatory world of Prokofieff's Visions Fugitives, deftly characterizing the rapidly shifting moods and colors, by turns playful, elegant, ridiculous, fierce, sore, and agitated. Taratushkin's approach won me over; he is a sensitive and thoughtful guide. I'll return often to this, especially for the Bartok.
