After his ‘outstanding’ (The Guardian) series of Piano Classics albums dedicated to the music of Alkan, Vincenzo Maltempo turns to repertoire that also belongs to the post-Romantic age of sweeping eloquence and high-flown fantasy, growing out of the work of Liszt and Brahms, whose concertos featured on Maltempo’s most recent Piano Classics recording (PCL10145). Here are three sonatas from the ‘Silver Age’ of Russian music from the turn of the last century, all exploiting a virtuoso technique to the full.

This new recording presents three piano sonatas by Russian composers, Balakirev, Glazunov and Kosenko. Balakirev’s highly attractive sonata is strongly rooted in the Russian folklore, using “folk” melodies and rhythms in colorful and overtly virtuosic pianism; Glazunov’s second piano sonata, in its powerful formalism, looks back at Brahms and Schumann, while Viktor Kosenko is clearly influenced by the mysticism and ecstatic romanticism of Scriabin.
Italian pianist Vincenzo Maltempo, one of the most interesting pianists of the young generation, is clearly at home in this repertoire.

Composer: Alexander Glazunov, Mily Balakirev, Viktor Kosenko
