Denis Matsuev (Artist, Performer)

Label Mariinsky

Release: January 20 2015

«Matsuev continues to impress, and this new recording of Russian concertos is a knockout. He rips into the Rachmaninoff concerto with tremendous vigor, and his playing of the first movement cadenza is unequalled. He is given perfect support from the superb orchestra under Gergiev's keen direction, and the result is one of the major recordings of this masterpiece… We have a big, clear resonant sound with remarkable impact. A terrific issue!»
