Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Vladimir Sverdlov was born in 1976 into a family with a long tradition of producing great artists. His grandfather David Ashkenazy, formidable composer and pianist, and his famous uncle Vladimir Ashkenazy, were a great influence on his development.

After having studied with Vladimir Krainev and Arie Vardi he became a prizewinner in several international competitions (A.o. Queen Elisabeth). Internationally, he has toured extensively, and has played in Progetto Martha Argerich, and with Misha Maisky and Mikhail Pletnev.

Sverdlov is a controversial pianist: his unconventional playing, full of extreme contrasts and deep emotions, makes a profound impact on his audience. His 'Pictures at an Exhibition' is not for the fainthearted: prepare for some unexpected (sound) effects!

This recording presents the pianist also as a composer, his four pieces receive here their CD premiere.
