Notes & Reviews:

In March 1984, a fragile 12-year-old boy went onstage at the Big Hall of the Moscow Conservatory to perform Chopin' s two concerts with the Moscow Philharmonic Society Orchestra, conducted by Dmitri Kitaenko. His name became instantly known both in the USSR and overseas. From the very first performance, one could not help but feel a rare combination of almost mutually exclusive qualities: freshness and fascination of youth and very mature, conscious proficiency. Today, almost 30 years later, the recording of his first concert at the conservatory keeps that wonderful youthful fascination.
