Sergey Lyapunov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 deserves a place among the great Romantic piano concertos, while the Rhapsody on Ukrainian Themes bears the imprint of Liszt’s virtuosic pianistic style. As a Russian Nationalist composer, Lyapunov was strongly influenced by Mily Balakirev, leader of the ‘Mighty Handful’ of composers, to whom he dedicated his Glinka Prize-winning Piano Concerto No. 1

The young Georgian pianist Shorena Tsintsabadze, a graduate of Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Conservatory, joins the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Dmitry Yablonsky, whose Naxos discography includes many acclaimed albums of Russian and Romantic repertoire.

Gramophone Magazine

February 2011

“Moscow-born Shorena Tsintsabadze gives direct, well-schooled accounts of all three works”

The Guardian

13th January 2011

***

“The performances are terrific, with monumental playing from Shorena Tsintsabadze and orchestral contributions of persuasive beauty from the Russian Philharmonic under Dmitry Yablonsky. The filler is the Rhapsody on Ukrainian Themes (1907), which is very difficult for the pianist (Tsintsabadze does wonders)”
