Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sergei Kvitko, acclaimed pianist, composer, recording engineer and producer, presents a unique solo piano CD where he gets to wear all three of these hats. Alongside Mozart’s quintessential Fantasy in D Minor, Haydn’s brilliant Variations in F Minor, and Enrique Granados’ rarely performed, exquisitely passionate and profoundly poetic suite Escenas Romanticas, Mr. Kvitko, in this self-produced and engineered recording, premiers his original virtuoso transcriptions of Bach’s Prelude in C Major – an unexpectedly romantic take on the famous piece; Mussorgsky’s Trepak from “Songs and Dances of Death”- dark and mysterious song transcribed for solo piano in tradition of Schubert-Liszt arrangements; and Eugène Ysaÿe’s Solo Violin Sonata Read more No. 3 “Ballade” – violin bravura masterpiece in its first ever daring arrangement for piano.
