Notes and Editorial Reviews
The Harmonia Nova series welcomes young artists singled out for their exceptional talents. For a pianist abundantly supplied with such gifts, look no further than the Tbilisi-born Sandro Nebieridze, finalist at the inaugural China International Music Competition and winner of multiple international prizes.
For his first recording, the eighteen-year-old has chosen an ambitious program of piano works which scale the heights of virtuosity (such as the Prokofiev Sonata) and are brimming with poetry. An album that demonstrates astonishing artistry for a young musician of his years.
From the first bars of Rachmaninov’s Second Sonata you are swept up in a maelstrom of emotion. The red light clearly holds no terrors for him as he relishes the full sonority of a richly voiced instrument. Nebieridze’s is a performance of Prokofiev's Fourth Sonata that can hold its head high among stiff competition.
