Notes & Reviews:
Composer Boris Tishchenko's prolific output includes, importantly, eleven piano sonatas: the First, his Op.3, the final his last completed score. Most are extensive, almost symphonic in scale. The unusual three-movement No. 7, Op.85 (1982) is a sonata 'for piano with bells', the pianist joined by a percussionist playing large bells, tubular bells and glockenspiel. No. 8, Op.99 (1986) is also a three-movement work, but that is where the similarities end. Their juxtaposition pays him perfect tribute, bearing in mind how deeply he respected tradition while also tearing up its rulebook.
The Guardian, 27th August 2015
That [Tishchenko] was a superb pianist underpins the expansive, gnarly language of his 11 piano sonatas. On this recording, French pianist Nicolas Stavy tackles the Seventh, longest and formally weirdest of them all, Stavy's playing is fearless throughout. He unleashes outrageous whirlwinds then finds penetrating space and contemplation in slow passages.
