Notes & Reviews:

Celebrated pianist Artur Pizarro combines his extensive experience with that of his pupil Vita Panomariovaite, herself an award-winning pianist, to produce an album of rarely recorded Rimsky Korsakov arrangements for piano duo. Originally released in 2007, ‘Rimsky-Korsakov: Piano Duos’ has been re-issued as part of Linn’s ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label’s award-winning catalogue. These two talented pianists bring their combined skill and virtuosity to bear in three colourful arrangements encompassing Rimsky-Korsakov’s most popular music for orchestra. Widely considered one of Rimsky-Korsakov’s finest orchestral works, Scheherazade is equally engaging and thrilling arranged for two pianos. The famous Arabian Nights story is clearly brought to life in the composer’s own arrangement. Sadko was an instant hit, with Borodin declaring it ‘a delight’; this arrangement retains the work’s original colours and moods. The Capriccio Espagnol is a Spanish-themed fantasy full of colour and exoticism, thoughtfully arranged by the composer. Pizarro’s prize-winning performance at the Leeds Piano Competition marked the beginning of his international concert career. As a piano duo Pizarro (secondo) and Panomariovaite (primo) have been broadcast on stations in Poland, Portugal, Norway and Belgium. Renowned for his lyrical poeticism and outstanding virtuosity, Pizarro has performed in Singapore, Norway, Denmark, Brussels & Germany. Lithuanian born Panomariovaite has won the Citta di Sulmona competition, the Ville de Brest competition and was a prize winner in the Joaquin Rodrigo International Piano Competition.
