Description
The silver medalist at the 1997 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Russian pianist Yakov Kasman delivers galvanizing performances of concertos by Dmitri Shostakovich and Alfred Schnittke. This recording received the "CHOC" award from Le Monde de la Musique.

"An outsize personality and a superlative pianist … [with] immense range and dynamism."—Gramophone

Shostakovich's First Piano Concerto showcases the composer's freewheeling early style at its zany apogee. The best way to play this music is to … go for the jugular, and jump over the top. And that's what happens in this amazing performance. The Kaliningrad Chamber Orchestra plays with characterful incision and animal magnitude that upstages more polished competitors on disc…. The demented glissandos whiz by like Road Runner on amphetamines, and who is that deft, tireless trumpet soloist?.... The Kaliningrad forces deliver a dignified, intensely shaded reading of the Chamber Symphony (based on Shostakovich's Eighth Quartet). Spare use of vibrato underscores the veiled, desolate quality of the largo movements that are all too often prettified. Even in its most lyrical, expansive moments, there's nothing pretty about Schnittke's Concerto for Piano and String Orchestra, with its seasick microtonal lurches, pounding non-minimalist repetitions, and tortured baroque allusions. Kasman and conductor Emmanuel Leducq-Barome embrace Schnittke's confrontational idiom with open arms, and make every bloody note count. A powerful disc all around."—Classics Today
