Notes & Reviews:

This first extended survey of the piano music of Ernst Krenek (1900–92) opens with his Fourth Sonata of 1948, which revisits the graceful elegance of the First Viennese School in the style of the Second. It continues with the witty George Washington Variations and the first recording of a brief Prelude written for the Swiss patron of music, Werner Reinhart, and concludes with Krenek’s completed version of Schubert’s unfinished Piano Sonata in C major, d840. The Ukrainian born pianist Stanislav Khristenko’s performances have been praised in numerous international media. A top prizewinner at some of the most prestigious international piano competitions, in 2013 alone he won First Prize at the 2013 Cleveland Int’l Piano Competition, First Prize at the 2013 Maria Canals Int’l Music Competition, and was named Fourth Laureate at the 2013 Queen Elisabeth Competition.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
The Ukrainian pianist Stanisklav Khristenko is perfectly suited for this music. He has a graceful and a remarkable skill at making Krenek's complex harmonies glitter and make the fine impression they should. Toccata's sound is perfect for pianist and music. I hope other volumes in the series come my way.
