Description
Recorded from 1954–56 in London's Abbey Road Studios, these pioneering performances by American pianist Shura Cherkassky exemplify his virtuoso technique and singing piano tone. They include Sergei Prokofiev's Piano Concerto no. 2; Dmitri Shostakovich's Concerto for Piano, Trumpet, and Strings; Abram Chasins's Three Chinese Pieces (including the pell-mell "Rush Hour in Hong Kong"); Francis Poulenc's Toccata; Igor Stravinsky's Circus Polka; and Beethoven's Bagatelle in G Minor, op. 119/1.

"Cherkassky's playing in the Shostakovich is highly detailed in terms of phrasing and dynamics, ultra-sensitive to the required mood, including, in the Allegro, a few bars with a genuine barrelhouse feel. No other pianist quite pulls that off…. The cadenzas in the Prokofiev are excellent…. The Chasins suite, from 1926, is reason enough to buy the CD for Cherkassky fans, attractive music in a post-Debussy manner. The three pieces are played with warmth, panache, and also humor…. Cherkassky was outstanding, but somehow slipped through the net of the recording world…. You'd better grab this one now."—Fanfare
