Notes and Editorial Reviews

Since her debut at the Marguerite Long-Jacques Thibaud International Piano Competition, Katia Skanavi has been a crowd-pleaser. She wins acclaim and audience accolades as she performs around the world. On this, her first recording with Pro Piano Records, Skanavi shows why.
Skanavi has a delicate touch on the keyboard, her fingers lighting through the melodies with a flourish. She is swift and technically quite adept, and she has an excellent feel for the mellifluous pieces she chooses. These solo piano works showcase her talents: Chopin suits her well, especially the Sonata No. 2. Skanavi is at her most powerful in the first movement, showing she can play with authority as well as beauty.
