About

Contents:
CD 1:
Medtner: Tales & Poems
Yana Ivanilova (soprano), Vassily Savenko (bass-baritone), Boris Berezovsky (piano) [MIR059]
Among the vocal selection here there are some little gems… sung with expressive intensity by the warmly lyrical Yana Ivanilova and the magnificent Vassily Savenko. Boris Berezovsky, the creative force behind this programme, has cherry-picked eight of the more than 30 Skazki that most closely reflect the songs. He plays these wonderfully well. If you haven't yet got into Medtner, this new disc is a compelling introduction to his world.” - Gramophone Magazine, March 2009

CD 2: Brahms: Piano Concerto No.2, Variations on a theme by Paganini, Hungarian Dances Nos. 1, 2 & 4
Boris Berezovsky (piano), Orchestre Philharmonique de l’Oural / Dmitri Liss
"How thrilling it is to hear the music taken by the scruff of the neck and handled so imperiously. Liss and his players catch the spirit of the maverick soloist...There has been a trend over the past few decades to adopt ever more solemn tempos for the great concertos warhorses. Berezovsky reverses the trend.” - Classic FM Magazine, June 2011 ****

CD 3: Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No.2, 12 Morceaux, Op.40 (excerpts), Valse sentimentale, Op.51 No.6, Theme & Variations (No.6 from Morceaux (6), Op.19), Andante Cantabile (from String Quartet No.1 Op.11)
Boris Berezovsky (piano), Henri Demarquette (cello), Sinfonia Varsovia / Alexander Vedernikov
They are well played, especially the delicious Andante cantabile from the First string Quartet… the lyrical little ‘Chanson triste’, offer more in the way of Tchaikovskian charm.” - International Record Review, December 2013
