Customer Reviews

Fine piano playing, spine-tingling music.

This latest release from Mariinsky displays the finest piano playing of Shostakovich’s concertos I have ever heard. The soloist, Denis Matsuev displays his variety and extreme virtuosity through these concertos and Shchedrin’s fifth. Shchedrin’s piano concerto is an intense, spine-chilling piece of music not for the faint of heart. Matsuev is uncompromising in his confident interpretation of such a complex layered work. A thoroughly enjoyable disc.


A really excellent recording of Shostakovich’s piano concertos. Matsuev is surely one of the greatest pianists of our time and it’s such a joy to be able to enjoy over and over again his wonderful playing. The disc is also nicely balanced between Shostakovich’s post-romantic/neo-classical style and Shchedrin’s more modernist approach.

What's not to like?

Fabulous music, fabulously played. He's the new Kissen!
