Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents a solo album of young Russian pianist Vadym Kholodenko. Vadym Kholodenko received the Grand Prix at the 2013 Van Cliburn International Competition in the United States. Today he performs with the leading Russian musicians of all generations and gives recitals at the most prestigious venues of Europe, Asia and America. The programme of the artist's debut album on Firma Melodiya is also unusual. Piano cycles of Balakirev (Sonata No. 2) and Tchaikovsky (Six Pieces on a Single Theme, Op. 21) who were representatives of the St. Petersburg and Moscow branches of Russian composing school of the 19th century, respectively; works written by contemporary composers - Evgeny Chaplygin's Little Cyprian Music (2003) inspired by the songs the composer heard in Cyprus; and a minimalist suite Lost in Darkness (2014) by Alexey Kurbatov. CD was recorded in the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory in November 2014 and August 2015.
