Notes and Editorial Reviews
"Aleksandar Serdar, Belgrade-born and in his early thirties, gives a diverse and hugely enjoyable programme; he is clearly a thoughtful musician with imagination and personality. His Galuppi Sonata No. 5 (which used to be a favourite of Michelangeli’s) is exquisitely moulded, balancing tonal refinement with wonderful freshness and spirit. The same qualities of beauty and elegance abound in Chopin’s Andante spianato and Grande Polonaise: there are many more crisp and muscular performances of the Polonaise on record, but few so concerned with colour, nuance and melodic shape. Maybe this piece should set the pulse racing a little more, but it is good to hear it treated so lovingly, rather than rushed off its feet merely to prove a
pianist’s virtuoso credentials...The Brahms Waltzes begin belligerently, but he goes on to delight and tease with his range of expressive resource (try tracks 12, 15 and 22 for an idea of the diversity of his musical response)."
-- Tim Parry, Gramophone (2/1999)
