“The infinite power and depth of romantic vibrations does not always require big shapes to express it. These miniature gems by two poets of music are a shining example of how disarmingly touching and penetrating a simple song or a vision of nature captured in sounds can be.”
– Denis Kozhukhin
On his new solo album, Russian star pianist Denis Kozhukhin presents a personal and colourful collection of character pieces taken from Mendelssohn’s Lieder ohne Worte and Edvard Grieg’s Lyric Pieces. Combing these miniature gems by two outstanding poets of music, Kozhukhin provides a shining example of how disarmingly touching and penetrating a simple song or a vision of nature captured in sound can be.
The program features classics such as Mendelssohn’s Venetian Gondola Song and Grieg’s Wedding Day at Troldhaugen, as well as less famous but equally enchanting pieces. Kozhukhin lifts out the noble simplicity of these works with his delicate playing.
Denis Kozhukhin has established himself as one of the greatest pianists of his generation. Other albums available at NativeDSD are the piano concertos of Grieg and Tchaikovsky (2016), Brahms Ballades and Fantasies (2017) and Ravel and Gershwin Piano Concertos (2018).
