Notes & Reviews:

Anna Vinnitskaya has now joined with Alpha Classics. Her first recording with the label is devoted to one of her repertoires of choice: the concertos of Dimitri Shostakovich. 'Anna Vinnitskaya displays a dazzling, indeed Olympian technique, combined with a particularly bold taste for differentiating sonic textures...Stubborn, virtuosic, possessive and possessed, Anna Vinnitskaya is a musician who never cheats. That was bound to bring her luck.' Marie-Aude Roux, Le Monde, 2009 "Vinnitskaya's sound at her entrance in the first movement was an ideal balance of vulnerability and focus, turning on a dime to sail headlong into the work's demanding technical passages. She gave a blazing performance of the second movement of Prokofiev's Piano Sonata No. 2 as an encore." -- Jennifer Hambrick, The Columbus Dispatch, May 23, 2015
