Vassily Primakov: Tchaikovsky Solo Piano

$ 14.99

The Russian/American pianist Vassily Primakov has begun a series of recordings for Bridge that have been highly received by the international press. Writing of his recent Beethoven CD (BRIDGE 9251), the International Record Review stated that 'Primakov's Beethoven offers thoughtful performances from a young musician who is more than a virtuoso.' Primakov's concerts have frequently occasioned rave reviews, the New York Times writing of Primakov's 'bold, expressive phrasing and dramatic commitment that brought the audience to its feet.' Bridge's latest Primakov CD includes music that is close to the heart of the 29-year old pianist 'two of Tchaikovsky's major statements for piano, The Seasons, Op. 37-bis, and the Grand Sonata in G Major, Op. 37. The Seasons, which could be called 'The Months' is a series of 12 short character pieces, written for a monthly Russian journal, and published during 1876. The Grand Sonata, a work of symphonic scope, was composed in the Spring of 1878, and is widely regarded as Tchaikovsky's most important utterance for piano. Vassily Primakov's recordings for Bridge include a recently released disc of the Chopin Piano Concertos (BRIDGE 9278)



“It’s a fantastic recording that may promote Tchaikovsky’s ‘Grand’ Sonata to a higher, deserved status, and I enthusiastically recommend it.” - Fanfare

“If you want The Seasons and the G major sonata coupled on one disc, Primakov definitely surpasses the Kasman (Calliope) and the Katin (Olympia) editions.” - ClassicsToday.com
