Description: Can’t put it better than Gramophone: “Prepare yourself for a deliciously scintillating potpourri of choice delicacies, full of character and charm, the sort that has virtually disappeared from concert life today but which, in the early decades of the 20th century, held audiences in thrall … Gugnin approaches these works on their own terms so that, far from seeming dated or brittle, they emerge fresh and full of vitality and charm. So for listeners suffering Beethoven fatigue, or those nostalgic for bygone days before the planet was doomed—or those who would simply like to hear some incredibly good piano-playing—this is the album for you’. Andrey Gugnin (Piano).
