Notes & Reviews:

"Anyone who can make the massive chordal writing characterizing much of the 19-year-old Brahms' First Piano Sonata sound both grand and effortless deserves a gold star, or at least a high rating from Classicstoday.com. Oleg Marshev certainly can claim both prizes... In the first two Op. 10 Ballades, Marshev shapes the outer sections with a flexible, singing line, and slightly holds back the middle sections' tempos without compromising dynamic force... These compliments also apply to the Op. 9 Variations. Note, for example, Marshev's assurance and verve in the repeated chords, and his sensitive phrasing of the lyrical episodes near the end." -Classics Today
