Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"I doubt whether the F sharp minor Nocturne has ever been played as beautifully as here, and not even Hofmann could match Cherkassky's wistful introspection. Contrast that with the mischievously camp treatment of Berkeley's Polka (a companion to Shostakovich's) and the terpsichorean Liszt Rhapsody, rare illustrations of a pianist clearly having the time of his life, followed, appositely, by "October" from The Seasons. Russian melancholy, yes, but also Cherkassky's own. A disc to treasure." -Gramophone
