Profil’s Frédéric Chopin series has so far featured the Ballads and Impromptus (Vol. 1), Waltzes (Vol. 2), Polonaises (Vol. 3) and the Etudes (Vol. 4), and now the next in the series continues with a selection of more of his finest works.

His previous volumes have all been well received by the press and Eugene Mursky has proved that he is a first-rate pianist definitely worthy of his international competition success. He was awarded 1st Prize in the prestigious World Piano Competition, 1994, and also the Chopin Prize for the best Chopin interpretation.

“Mursky has shown himself to be an artist of potentially wonderful talent.” The Daily Telegraph

“…Mursky's dignity and understatement in the Barcarolle, Fantasie and Berceuse take him a long way on an always elusive journey. His Fantasie is clear-sighted and musicianly, the opening stealthy march and assuaging reply most sensitively nuanced and phrased, the central B major section a movingly simple oasis of calm.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2009

Sophie Cashell (piano)

Sophie Cashell, the winner of this year’s BBC talent show Classical Star, launches her recording career with ‘Debut’. This piano recital disc will be available through Universal Classics and Jazz (UCJ), the UK’s leading classical label.

The recital comprises some of Sophie’s favourite piano music, pieces that have been influential in her career so far. Sophie, currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music, won over the Classical Star judges (Charles Hazelwood, Jason Lai, Chi-Chi Nwanoku and Steve Abbott) with an impressive performance of Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto no. 2.

The album was recorded in the Théâtre St Bonnet, Bourges, France, a theatre built just two years ago in an authentic 19th Century salon style similar to those where Chopin and Liszt would have played. The Gothic cathedral in Bourges provided Sophie with further inspiration, hence the choice of Debussy’s La Cathedrale Engloutie which appears on the disc.

“Chopin's Third Scherzo has Cashell setting out her stall: plenty of power, a likeable sound and an excellent refusal to rush and/or show off. Early days, yes. But clearly, a name to watch.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2008 ****

“Sophie Cashell, winner of the BBC's talent show Classical Star and still a student at the RAM, has turned in an impressive debut full of promise.
Not the least of its attractions are beautifully sculpted, poised performances of all three of Liszt's Liebesträume instead of just the evergreen No 3. The last – more in her fingers than the two lesser-known ones – is nicely done.
In addition we have both of Liszt's Ballades: No 1 is rarely performed but Cashell makes a convincing case for it with some compelling flights of bravura; and No 2, if somewhat too fragmentary in the early stages, is played with real fire in the belly. She will almost certainly get more out of the C sharp minor Scherzo and L'islejoyeuse in the future, though they are far from negligible achievements. Two further refreshingly different choices round off the recital – Philip Martin's Two Variations on Irish Airs and Nikolai Kapustin's Motive Force.
The lively, resonant piano sounds rich and natural, though the upper treble floats away in quieter exposed passages, disembodied from the middle and bass registers. Not a big deal. Sophie Cashell, on the other hand, probably is.”
Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

“Miss Cashell, still a student at the RAM, has turned in an impressive debut full of promise. Not the least of its attractions are beautifully sculpted, poised performances of all three of Liszt's Liebesträume…” Gramophone Magazine, December 2008

Remastered from the original 1990 release these performances show Earl Wild at the top of his form. "One of the last torch-bearers of the pianist-Titans Rachmaninoff, Hofmann, and Busoni, makes his mark here. It's an elegant inscription, of perfect dimension and clarity. The evenness of his mechanism is stunning. I think the keystone to this disc is the third Scherzo. The bell-like bass is stupendous."
