Konstantin Scherbakov, who has now become one of the best pianist with highest caliber in his generation as well as has quickly got known worldwide as “the first prize winner’s professor”, released “ME On the Wings of Songs” from TwoPianists Records, a newly-launched independent CD label in South Africa.
ME is essentially an album of the pianist’s favorite encore pieces, and the selection of music is very tasteful and the order is so perfectly and musically considered as if listeners attended a pleasant and fascinating recital of his.
Each performance in ME shows Scherbakov’s extraordinarily sophisticated microcosm of pianism which is going up to the same standard as that of the greatest Russian master pianists in the past such as Richter and Gilels. A “must” CD for all music lovers, piano students and teachers. © 2012 Chopin Magazine (Tokyo) Read original review in Japanese
