Notes & Reviews:
This beautiful new release is a live recording of Tatyana Nikolayeva's 1989 Herodes Atticus Odeon Recital, and this is the first time the recording from that even has ever been published. Russian pianist Tatyana Nikolayeva was the greatest Bach performer of her generation, as well as an undisputed authority on the piano music of Dmitri Shostakovich. This recital was made in an open-air venue, and displays Nikolayeva's impeccable technique and her interpretive sensitivity. Her chosen repertoire crosses genres and periods, and includes works from Bach, Prokofiev, Mussorgsky, Schumann, and more.
