Notes and Editorial Reviews

Haydn’s Andante con variazioni is a masterpiece of fantasy and expression in which the alternation of themes provides ever-changing variety. Domenico Scarlatti’s Sonatas revel in colour and rhythmic vivacity with the G minor, K 450 luxuriating in a ‘Spanish Tango’ of great originality. Robert Schumann told his wife-to-be, Clara, that the Sonata in F sharp minor, so rich in poetry and passion, was ‘a cry from my heart to yours’. Marianna Prjevalskaya is a laureate of numerous international piano competitions, including the Paderewski (2007), Seoul (2008), José Iturbi (2008), Sendai (2010) and Maria Canals (2011).
