F. Liszt - Alexander Strukov, piano

F. Liszt  -  Alexander Strukov, piano
ID: CR135
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano

The name of Alexander Strukov means a brilliant virtuosity, perfect technique, the sound of the Konstantin Igumnov school - soft, singing, and deep. His performers’ conceptions are always thought over, and the musical forms are well-balanced. His bright temperament is controlled by a powerful intellect; he's got a great erudition. This is what has always enraptured me in Alexander Strukov's performances. I remember him as a young man who had just entered the Moscow Conservatory (in 1983); before that, he studied with Evgeni Timakin, a pupil of Konstantin Igumnov, an outstanding musician and the Central Music School professor. He also studied with the wonderful Lev Vlassenko, the unforgettable musician and my friend; Alexander took his teacher's perfect taste and artistry. This allowed him to repeat Lev Vlassenko's success, winning Ferenc Liszt International piano competition in Budapest (1991). Alexander gives lots of concerts in Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Switzerland, Japan and other countries. He had played with many eminent conductors, among them - Vladimir Ziva, Veronika Dudarova, Pavel Yadykh, Andras Ligeti, Roland Bader, Gianmario Cavallaro, Mikhail Pletnev and others. He gives a lot of master classes in Russia and abroad. Alexander Strukov is also a fine composer. He is the author of two piano concertos, piano quintet, other chamber and piano works. In 2006 he won the Moscow Conservatory competition for the best cadenza to a Mozart concerto. One of his cadenzas - to the third movement of the Piano concerto no. 21 - I have recorded on a CD; I am also going to perform his cadenzas to the Sixth Concerto. Professor Vlassenko invited the young laureate to become his assistant at the Moscow Conservatory. Since 2004, he works as my assistant. At present, he has got his own class and a rank of an assistant professor. I greatly appreciate his skills as a pianist and pedagogue; the students admire him, he plays wonderfully, and I am proud that he became a member of our "Konstantin Igumnov" department

Occasion - Maria Fedotova, flute -(Piazzolla, Berlioz, Ibert,  Zgraia)
ID: CR035

Type: CD
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

This recording has been made by musicians united almost by chance - thanks to the occasion. They do not form a permanent ensemble and they are all otherwise engaged in their own projects. The music that they have recorded together does not take a leading place in their repertoire, possibly because it is considered not really "serious" by "serious" musicians. Even for the composers whose works are featured these pieces are not essential. Sometimes even the most uncompromising artist gives up his ambition for a while for the sake of popular recognition and approval. But even when composing "accidental" music a true artist would express another, quite different side of his creative individuality following the high standards previously set for himself.
The occasion played its role not only in creation of the pieces featured here, but also in the lives of the composers.

Mikhail Voskresensky is one of Russia's leading pianists. He is the winner of four international piano competitions (Schumann in Berlin, in Rio de Janeiro, George Enescu in Bucharest, and Van Cliburn in Fort Worth, Texas). In 1966 he was honoured with the Merited Artist of Russia award and in 1989, the People's Artist of Russia. Mikhail Voskresensky has extensive concert experience. His performances has been recorded and issued on more than 50 CDs. His performing art is well known and favored by the audiences worldwide. He is the only pianist in Russia to perform all of Chopin's piano compositions during one concert season (in 1982-83, in nine recitals in the Maly Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire). Mikhail Voskresensky graduated from the Moscow Conservatoire where he studied under Ilia Klyachko, Boris Zemliansky, Yakob Milstein, Lev Oborin (piano) and Leonid Roizman (organ). As student of the famous Lev Oborin, the winner of the First Chopin's Competition in 1927, Voskresensky adopted his teacher's refined romanticism, and perfect taste in harmony with the piano's splendid sound. The images evoked by his playing suggest contrasting musical colours, never out of harmony, with a charming legato inducing the instrument to sing. "His playing fascinates audiences with its artistry, cordiality and ingeniousness. Mikhail Voskresensky is a very talented and intelligent musician", Oborin wrote about his pupil. Voskresensky's repertoire includes Beethoven's 32 sonatas, all works of Chopin, and 64 piano concertos. He has performed with orchestras under the direction of more than 150 conductors, among them - Charles Dutoit, John Pritchard, Franz Konwitschny, Kurt Masur, Eugeny Svetlanov, Kirill Kondrashin etc. Since 2007, he is involved in a project of recording all Mozart piano concerti with Pavel Slobodkin Centre Symphony orchestra in cooperation with the conductor Leonid Nikolaev. On this CD, the sixth in this cycle, Concerti no.5, 11, and 18 are represented (recorded live from a concert in Maly Hall of the Moscow Conservatory on March 19, 2009). Mikhail Voskresensky began his pedagogical activities at the Moscow Conservatoire in 1959. For 8 years, he was an assistant to Professor Lev Oborin; since 1963 he has his own class. At present, Professor Voskresensky is the Head of piano chair at the Moscow Conservatoire. His pupils have won 112 prizes in international competitions, among them 49 gold medals. He has participated as juror for many major international competitions. He continues to be Chairman of the Jury for the Scriabin International Competition in Moscow. Mikhail Voskresensky is the President of the Scriabin International Society, and Guest Professor in the Toho Gakuen School in Tokyo. Professor Voskresensky gives numerous master classes in Russia and abroad.

Chopin - Polina Fedotova, piano

Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano

Polina Fedotova is an exceptionally interesting musician, whose concerts always attract true lovers of piano music. Her performances lack self-advertisement; they are marked with a wonderful sense of style and fine taste. Her brilliant virtuosity does not overshadow rich emotions and profoundness of her interpretations. Music surrounded Miss Fedotova from the very first days. Her father - an outstanding conductor Victor Fedotov - worked at the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg for almost fifty years, conducted ballet performances in the world's best theaters. Polina studied at the St. Petersburg Conservatoire secondary school in the class of the eminent pedagogue Valentina Kunde. Later, she continued her education at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire under professor Yevgeni Malinin, a famous pianist; she went on to post graduate course with professor Valeri Kastelsky. Both professors brought her up in the traditions of romantic school of Henry Neighaus. The beautiful "singing" touche that critics always appreciated in Polina's performances is one of the most characteristic features of the Russian piano school. At the age of 13, she became a prize-winner of the International youth competition Concertino-Praha (2nd prize). Later she participated in other prestigious competitions: Sergei Rachmaninov Competiton in Moscow, where she was awarded a diploma, and Musica di camera in Italy (3rd prize). In 1992, she was the winner of Frederic Chopin International Piano Competition in Palma di Mallorca (1st prize and Gold Medal). A Spanish newspaper "Actualle" highly appraised performances of the young competitor from Russia: "Polina Fedotova has the real power and strength of the Russian piano school, which allows her to transmit all the subtlety of dynamics of the great Polish composer". Polina Fedotova's repertoire is wide: Tchaikovsky and Bach, Rachmaninov and Beethoven, Mozart and Rimsky-Korsakov, Scriabin, Prokofiev and Chopin, Schubert, Liszt, Ravel. Miss Fedotova likes monographic programs. While preparing to such programs, she plunges into the "inner world" of the composer’s soul, emotionally and intellectually. Her interpretations reveal the secrets of the composers' creations, fascinating the listeners with their high expression and deep feelings. Polina Fedotova's concert life is very active and interesting. She is a soloist of the Moscow Philharmony and gives concerts in Russia and abroad. In 1999, she was awarded the important title of the Honoured Artist of Russian Federation. Since 1996, Polina Fedotova teaches piano at the Moscow Conservatoire. "Music educates the human soul, says Polina Fedotova, and I would be happy to know that beautiful ideals of art that are so dear to me since my early childhood, would be preserved in the creative activity of my pupils".
