Notes and Editorial Reviews

Kirill Gerstein, recipient of the prestigious 2010 Gilmore Artist Award, is one of today’s most intriguing young musicians. For his solo album debut on Myrios Classics, he has recorded a spellbinding performance of Liszt’s Sonata in B minor and Schumann’s Humoreske. The disc also includes the world premiere recording of Oliver Knussen’s enchanting composition Ophelia’s Last Dance from 2010.

“[Gerstein] showed how virtuosity and soulfulness can go hand in hand.” — Chicago Sun Times
