As ever, Anthony Goldstone as both pianist and, in some cases, arranger, has produced a startlingly original and vibrant program. Here, music originally written for concert or operatic performance is presented in little known transcriptions, all but one in fact here receiving their first recording. An important and rare addition to the Tchaikovsky canon. Volume 2 will on the same basis contain transcriptions of music from Tchaikovsky's ballets.

Format: Audio CD
Anthony Goldstone's unique Russian repertoire cd series now offers a uniqueTchaikovsky disc with beautiful performances of repertoire which should be performed by more concert pianists instead of the standard "deadly dozen." The recording sound and engineering iswarm and the playing offers subtley, nuanance and beautiful phrasing. These are welcome additions to any collection especially for those pianists and aficandoes who love unique 19th century piano repertoire.
