The meteoric ascent of Vassily Primakov's international career has resulted from a series of competition victories, prizes in honour of his artistry, and his award-winning recordings. Winner of First Prize in the Young Concert Artist International Auditions and the Audience Prize of the Gina Bachauer International Competition, Primakov was named the Classical Recording Foundation's Young Artist of the Year in 2007. His much-heralded recordings have garnered National Public Radio's CD of the Year (Chopin Mazurkas, 2010), American Record Guide's Best of the Year (Schubert Impromptus; and Dvorak Piano Concerto, 2011) and BBC Music Magazine's Music Choice (Chopin Ballades, Brahms Intermezzi, and Scriabin Sonata No. 4, 2010). This new recording presents Primakov's renditions of some of Rachmaninoff's most beloved works, played on a superb Bechstein Concert Grand.
The (Corelli Variations) showcases Primakov's masterful ability to execute chordal passages with maximum legato and minimum sustain pedal. --Gramophone,Jan'12
