Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"These are meticulously prepared and observed readings - if Rachmaninov asks for 'ppp legatissimo' or sharply contrasted dynamics from one bar to the next, then Hayroudinoff takes the composer at his word, a courtesy to Rachmaninov not granted by every pianist. But Hayroudinoff goes much further than mere accuracy. If he cannot quite equal the composer's breathtaking nonchalance in the three he recorded, he comes close His rich tone and beefy attack serve him well This is powerful Rachmaninov playing that transcends the artificial constraints of the recording studio." -Gramophone

"There's little doubt that Hayroudinoff's warmly recorded interpretations are not only brilliantly characterised and absolutely masterly in terms of technique, but also sufficiently varied in colour and timbre to enable him to extract the maximum degree of impact throughout each piece - an extra dimension that makes his performances sound even more vibrant and imaginative that those of Howard Shelley and Vladimir Ovchinnikov, two of the undoubted front-runners in these works." -BBC Music Magazine.

Note: This disc contains the complete Etudes Tableaux, Opp. 33 and 39.
