Rachmaninov: Piano Sonata No. 1 & Chopin Variations

Rachmaninov: Piano Sonata No. 1 & Chopin Variations


Rachmaninov:

Piano Sonata No. 1 in D minor, Op. 28

Variations on a Theme of Chopin, Op. 22


Zlata Chochieva (piano)

Two rarely played pianistic masterworks by Rachmaninov on one disc. The first Piano Sonata and the Chopin Variations suffer unjustly from the fame of their elder brothers (The Second Piano Sonata and the Corelli Variations), yet they are truly the works of the same genius, in their broad and expansive romantic language, their pianistic glittering and bravura and their true Russian Soul. They are close to the heart of the young Russian pianist Zlata Chochieva, who makes with these pieces an impressive debut on Piano Classics. Zlata’s technique knows no limits, but it is her exquisite musical taste, her innate melodic feeling and sweeping passion that impresses her audience most deeply. The winner of several important Piano Competitions she embarks on an international career.

“the possessor of a comprehensive technique who brings an inner glow to every bar. Her playing is indelibly Russian in its fullness and warmth, backed by a dauntless and easy command. What hallucinatory play of light and shade in Var 2, what lightness and brilliance in the skittering waltz patterns of Var 21.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2013

Alexander Ghindin plays Stravinsky, Rachmaninov & Tchaikovsky

Alexander Ghindin plays Stravinsky, Rachmaninov & Tchaikovsky


Rachmaninov:

Morceaux de Fantaisie, Op. 3

Stravinsky:

Petrushka

Tchaikovsky:

Grand Sonata for Piano in G major Op. 37


A full-blooded Russian programme played by one of Russia’s foremost pianists, Alexander Ghindin. Stravinsky’s burleske of the tragic puppet Pétrouchka, a display of dazzling virtuosity and imagination, Rachmaninov’s passionate and wistful tone poems, and the grand scope and bravura of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Sonata. Alexander Ghindin has won prizes in International competitions including: Queen Elizabeth (2nd prize), Cleveland Piano Competition (1st prize). He plays all over the world with distinguished orchestras and conductors (Slatkin, Inbal, Spivakov, Ashkenazy, KitaenkO, Fedoseyev, Simonov).

“His Petrushka is novel and exploratory, leaving you with a sharp sense of the original ballet, its alternating exultance and despair, rather than mere virtuoso glory. Nothing is played for obvious effect and the same could be said of his Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky...Piano Classics's sound is admirable and this is clearly a pianist in the grandest of grand traditions.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2013

“At its best, the enthusiasm of Ghindin's playing is hard to resist, and Tchaikovsky's huge Sonata doesn't appear on disc so often that a performance with such sweep and grandeur can be easily ignored. Not everything comes off, but it's worth hearing when it does.” The Guardian, 25th October 2012 ***
