Primakov in Concert, Vol. 2
Following the critical success of Primakov in Concert, Vol. 1, Bridge is pleased to release a second compilation of the great Russia/American pianist's live recordings. Volume 2 adds four new composers to Primakov's discography, ranging broadly from J.S. Bach to Philip Glass. Of Vol. 1 (BRIDGE 9322) Calum McDonald in BBC Music Magazine writes: "In the last couple of years Bridge Records has released a stream of recordings of the young Russian virtuoso Vassily Primakov that have garnered well-deserved critical acclaim: he is a player of sterling quality, with a power of insight to equal his masterly technique. This well-chosen anthology is well up to standard, displaying not only keyboard brilliance but also deep understanding of the music in hand.....here is a stunning account of Schubert's Wanderer Fantasie...Rachmaninov's Second Piano Sonata is fluid and fiery: the playing reminds me of Horowitz. A superbly enjoyable disc highly recommended."
Mendelssohn: Songs Without Words, Book 2, Op. 30
J.S. Bach: Suite No. 2 in C minor, BWV 813
