“Eerily like the ghost of Horowitz, Mr. Ivanov engulfed the keyboard, rattling the rafters and thrilling the audience.” — The Washington Times

Gleb Ivanov remains utterly true to the legendary traditions of the Russian school of piano playing, while deriving both inspiration and virtuosic example from the world’s greatest technical masters of the keyboard: legendary artists like Horowitz, Rachmaninov, Gilels and others.

Gleb’s playing – aside from its stunning virtuosity – is distinguished by the kind of emotional intensity and interpretive “electricity” that only exceptional technique can reveal. And he treats the piano as primarily a vocal instrument that must project “singing” melodic lines, conveying deep feeling as only the human voice can. As The New York Times put it, Ivanov is “… a young super-virtuoso, with musical sensitivity and an appreciation of style to go with the thunder and lightning”

These technical and interpretive qualities are reflected in Gleb’s choice of repertoire for this astounding album, ranging from lovely, cantabile pieces by Schubert through paragons of pensive delicacy by Chopin to ultra-virtuosic transcriptions by Liszt and others.
