André Tchaikowsky CD is "album of the week"13 January 2014
The renowned critic and commentator Norman Lebrecht has recently named a new CD of piano music by André Tchaikowsky as his album of the week (6 January 2013).
The CD, on Toccata Classics, has been released following a recent revival of the composer’s music, which included the premiere of his opera The Merchant of Venice at the 2013 Bregenzer Festspiele.
Lebrecht, reviewing “André Tchaikowsky - Volume One: Music for Piano”, writes that “the music engages the listener with a powerful personality and an infectious musicality”, and describes Tchaikowsky’s music as “like nothing you’ve ever heard before.”
The CD includes a new recording of Tchaikowsky’s Piano Concerto (Op.4) by Maciej Grzybowski with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Paul Daniel.
The CD is available from Toccata Classics and retailers including Amazon.
