Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Scottish pianist Murray McLachlan has attracted lavish praise throughout his career, with numerous rave reviews by Gramophone and Penguin, and is especially renowned as an astute interpreter of Russian piano pieces. McLachlan presents Myaskovsky's seven piano sonatas with brilliance, here joined by several other works for solo piano: Sonatine in E Minor, Rondo-Sonata in B-Flat Minor, 'Reminiscences,' and his six-part suite 'Yellowed Leaves.' These recordings have all received much praise when issued separately, here in a budget 3-disc box they are a reference quality addition to the collector.

"McLachlan writes of the 'enormous tactile pleasure' for the performer... His playing is both authoritative and persuasive. These sonatas are of interest and substance." - Penguin Guide

"The sonatas are valuable for rounding out the picture of the Russian late-romantic tradition, and the brief intersections with early Prokofiev (No. 1) and French pastoral style (No. 6) are noteworthy. The piano writing is strong and idiomatic, and McLachlan a worthy exponent - lucid, tasteful and well prepared. All in all this is a welcome and recommendable issue." - Gramophone
