Paraphrase de concert: Grande Valse Brillante in E flat major, Op. 18
Praised by Gramophone magazine for ‘his pinpoint articulation, his unerring sense of rhythmic drive and security, his weaving together of the many layers and voices and his sense of colour and phrasing’, Konstantin Scherbakov is only the second pianist to embark on recordings of the complete piano music of the great Polish-American pianist/composer Leopold Godowsky.
On this disc he performs both original compositions and transcriptions or paraphrases of several pieces by Chopin, including an elaborate reworking of the Grande Valse Brillante in E flat major, Op. 18.
