About

Stravinsky described Nikolai Roslavets as “the most interesting Russian composer of the 20th century,” but after decades of suppression under the Soviet regime his significance is still being assessed even today with newly discovered and reconstructed works included in this recording. Scriabin’s influence can be heard in earlier works, and a constant search for fresh sound constellations resulted in Roslavets’s invention of influential new compositional techniques, treating the piano with a passionate power and complex sovereignty that Olga Andryushchenko describes as like “fire and ice!”

Olga Andryushchenko was educated at the Central Special Music School, and the Faculty of Historical and Modern Performing Arts of the Moscow Tchaikovsky State Conservatory under Alexei Lubimov. She has won a number of important prizes and awards, including the “Franz Schubert and the Music of Modernity” Piano Competition (Austria, 2000), the Premium Piano Seiler Competition (Germany, 2001), the Premio Vanna Spadafor International Piano Competition (Italy, 2004), the Bach Competition (Leipzig, 2006), the Musica Antiqua International Fortepiano Competition (Belgium, 2007), the A. Scriabine International Piano Competition (Paris, 2008), the N. Rubinstein International Piano Competition (Paris, 2008), and the Fortepiano Competition (Schloss Kremsegg, 2011). She has given a number of piano recitals and played with orchestras in Europe, North America and Asia. She has recorded extensively for radio and now lives in Germany.

‘We should all be grateful to a brilliant pianist like Andryushchenko for making the huge effort to learn these brutally difficult works and giving them a chance to be heard.’ – American Record Guide on GP70304 (Mosolov)
