Product Description

Review

Clef du Mois 'We particularly admire the combination of strength and variety of colour which perfectly suits these concertos ... the pianist twirls the notes into constant musical fireworks ... One of the most impressive advances in recent years' --ResMusica (France)

Denis Matsuev's account of the Piano Concerto No. 1 for Piano, Trumpet and Strings leaves one breathless in admiration for his formidable technique and the accuracy of his playing ... All three works are performed by the gifted Russian virtuoso Denis Matsuev accompanied by the Mariinsky Orchestra and Valery Gergiev whose affinity with the music of both composers is clearly evident in the performances on this disc ... There is no doubt that this recording will further enhance the growing reputation of this outstanding Russian virtuoso. Definitely recommended --SA-CD.net (UK)

The immediate realization you have upon listening to this CD is that Valery Gergiev and Denis Matsuev are very much of one mind as to where to go with this music, and more importantly, perfectly matched for sonority --Fanfare

***** among the best currently available ... superb playing ... these performances are exceptional --BBC Music Magazine (UK)

Denis Matsuev is excellent in all 3 works. I would go so far as to say that he gives the best performance on CD that I have heard of any pianist in these concertos, and I have heard Kissin, Argerich and many others.

Denis Matsuev is perfectly matched with the music of Shostakovich. At once romantic, compelling, exciting, thrilling (the list goes on). I particularly love the second movement of the Second Piano Concerto. It is deeply moving and beautifully executed. The Mariinsky orchestra are swift becoming my favourite, their playing is controlled, technically astounding and quite beautiful. A real Russian experience!

Denis Matsuev is extraordinary. His playing on this recording is quite exquisite and this recording really highlights his technical prowess as well as his musicality. The Mariinsky never fail to impress. This is a truly exciting recording and the works compliment each other perfectly.
