Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Russian-born American composer Ornstein (1893 - 2002) lived long enough - an astonishing 109 years - to see his music fall into and re-emerge from obscurity. His earliest surviving work dates from around 1905; his last was composed in 1990. Not surprisingly, his music embraces a range of styles, from atmospheric impressionism to fiery virtuosity to the Rachmaninov-like Romanticism.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
One of the great originals. If you have never heard this complex, multi-layered, entertainingly colorful music, grab this well-filled CD, Part I of a welcome series. Pianist Arsentiy Kharitonov emphasizes Ornstein's Russianess, splashing the Cossack Impressions, Sonata 4, 4 Impromptus, and 'In the Country' with lavish colors. It's certainly a valid approach and is well served by the rich sounding recording.
