Dmitri Kabalevsky is ranked with Shostakovich and Prokofiev among the former Soviet Union’s leading composers, although his music is lesser known. Kabalevsky was not as adventurous as his contemporaries in terms of harmony and preferred a more conventional diatonicism, but his natural talent for catchy melodies and clear structures were appealing to audiences.
cpo already recorded his complete symphonies (9998332) and return here with the complete works for piano and orchestra. This is masterfully written music of great appeal and full of wit and charm.
“A first-rate set of Kabalevsky's complete piano-orchestral works”
“the balance between orchestra and Michael Korstick's bright, enthusiastic performances is well judged.”
