Notes & Reviews:

"Only a very special pianist could whip up Balakirev's 'Islamey' into a dizzy caprice as the last of five encores after such a taxing programme. An amazing recital, brimming with ideas, including a performance of Beethoven's Op. 111 which really stretches the instrument and re-creations of all four Chopin Scherzos that make you forget their repetitious nature. Pletnev's characteristically chiselled sound is realistically captured." Critic's Choice, BBC Music
