Notes & Reviews:

Rachmaninoff's 24 Preludes are pianistic masterworks of the highest order. Each prelude expresses the deepest emotions of the Russian master, from ecstatic joy and tolling of bells, to Slavic melancholy and utter tragedy. A unique live recording by Lukas Geniuas, a feat of extraordinary concentration and technical mastery. Played in the big hall of the famous Moscow Conservatory it displays Geniuas' prodigious gifts: supreme control, strong sense of structure and a sincere and warm projection of the human emotions of the music. Lukas Geniuas, winner of the silver medal at the 2015 Tchaikovsky Piano Competition, was born into a family of musicians, (his grandmother was the legendary Vera Gornostaeva) is Silver Medallist of the 2010 Chopin Competition, and first-prize winner of the German Piano Award and the Gina Bachauer Competion. His earlier recording for Piano Classics (PCL0075, Beethoven: Hammerklavier Sonata - Brahms: Piano Sonata 1), received great critical acclaim: "Geniuas not only convinces with energy and virtuosity, he also approaches the massive sound structures with a deep poetic feeling" (Spiegel, Germany).

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
I'd love to hear Geniusas play these 15 years from now after fully maturing as the world class pianist he is well on the way to becoming. If he can keep the youthful vigor heard here and mix in a little deeper level of balancing the main melodies with all of the counter-melodies we'll have the best of both worlds.
