Reviews

Recording: Tchaikovsky & Grieg Piano Concertos

Editor’s Choice “Above all, [Kozhukhin] is natural, and this naturalness allows him to create an impression of unaffected simplicity and directness. Of course, this could only be achieved by deeply cultivated musical instincts and a technique as developed and varied as it is unobtrusive. His inerrant rhythmic sense is pliant yet taut; his sound unalloyed silver. Listening to Kozhukhin, you’re left with one thing: the music – incontestable, complete.”
Gramophone, May 2016

“Kozhukhin’s piano playing has an endless amount of facets and sound colours … he breathes new life into these well-known pieces … His new CD shows him once again to be a tasteful and style-conscious virtuoso for whom the piano is much more than an instrument of self-expression. Very few pianists have such a musical breadth as [Kozhukhin]. Denis Kozhukhin is already one of the greats of the black and white keys.”

“…these two works are the best known concertos in the repertoire and a brave choice for [Kozhukhin’s] first orchestral disc … If you want to add these old warhorses to your music library, however, there are few better places to start than here.”
