Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Awarded a 'Choc' by French music magazine le Monde de la Musique, among others, for 'her extraordinarily powerful and virtuosic playing' and her 'unique sensibility ' (Liszt Recital - 1027-2), young virtuoso Polina Leschenko is back with a highly anticipated all Russian album.

Starting her program with two wonderful Waltzes by composer and pianist Mischa Levitski, Polina then proceeds with a stunning performance of Rachmaninov second sonata -in the revised version of Horowitz -. The second half of the program is devoted to a highly moving rendition of the complete first cycle of the Forgotten Melodies-including the Reminiscenza Sonata- by romantic composer Nikolai Medtner.

This Hybrid Super Audio CD surround,
Read more recorded in the world renowned acoustic of 'La Chaux de Fonds'(CH), is a must have for any piano lovers."
