Notes & Reviews:

Nikolai Medtner saw his destination in the development of the traditions of classical art, but never blindly followed its examples. Limiting himself to work in the area of chamber genres, Medtner created music that was original, imbued with thrilling beauty and nobleness. One of the most gifted pianists of the 20th century, Medtner composed three piano concertos, a piano quintet, three cycles of characteristic pieces, 40 fairy tales, and 14 sonatas. Among his other works were pieces for violin and piano, including three sonatas, and about 100 romances and songs. The composer's most significant works comprise his Piano Concerto No. 1 in C minor, Op. 33. He later completed Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 50 in the 1920s.
