Notes and Editorial Reviews

Melodiya presents an album featuring Grigory Ginsburg, a wonderful virtuoso pianist and one of the glorious representatives of the Russian piano school of the 20th century. Ginsburg’s name is now overshadowed by some of his better-known peers such as Emil Gilels, Sviatoslav Richter, Yakov Flier, and Stanislav Neuhaus. However, in his time in the 1930s–’50s, his concert performances entranced audiences and critics alike.
