Notes & Reviews:

"Nikolai Demidenko's selection of Rachmaninov's solo piano works is perfect for anyone looking for a moody, atmospheric accompaniment to a session of solitary brooding... Even though he does play with visceral excitement, Demidenko is understated by comparison. That is exactly what makes his program so satisfying. There's room in it for the listener to feel the music as well and completely get inside it... there is nothing in Demidenko's performance that doesn't deserve enthusiastic recommendation." -All Music

'A marvellous disc' (BBC Music Magazine)

'This is by any standards a distinguished recital, and clearly the work of a master pianist' (CDReview)

'Even in the current age of super-virtuosos, the demands of Rachmaninov's piano music are such that few players prove genuinely equal to the challenge. Nikolai Demidenko is certainly one - his control of dynamics, myriad tonal shadings and intuitive grasp of where the music is going inspire the greatest admiration ... This is an exceptional collection of unforgettable miniatures' (Classic FM Magazine)

'This excellently chosen selection of Rachmnaninov's finest solo piano works is played with superb panache by Demidenko ... With warm acoustic, a most appealing disc' (BBC Music Magazine)
