Anna Vinnitskaya has now joined Alpha Classics. Her first recording for the label is devoted to one of her repertories of choice: the concertos of Shostakovich.'When I performed the Second Piano Concerto for the first time at the age of eleven, his music seemed very optimistic to me. Only later did I understand everything else that is concealed behind the "façade" of Shostakovich's music.'[The Russian pianist reveals two facets of the composer's music on this disc by juxtaposing the First Piano Concerto in C minor op. 35, an 'insolent' composition with a kaleidoscope of atmospheres and stylistic registers (Russian Romanticism, American jazz, neoclassicism) that constantly surprise the listener, and the more traditional Concerto in F major, which radiates youthful high spirits.] A pupil of Sergey Ossipenko at the Serge Rachmaninoff Conservatory, then of the great Evgeni Koroliov at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg, Anna Vinnitskaya won the Leonard Bernstein Prize, but it was her First Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels in 2007 that launched her career. For this recording, Anna Vinnitskaya is surrounded by partners of the front rank: the famous Kremerata Baltica, regarded as one of the most creative ensembles on today's musical scene, and the prestigious wind players of the Staatskapelle Dresden

Die beiden dritten Klavierkonzerte von Rachmaninow und Prokofjew sind Repertoire-Renner und gehören zu den bekanntesten und meistgespielten der beiden russischen Komponisten: vielfach nach innen gekehrt, gefühlsbetont das eine (Rachmaninow sah sich oft dem Vorwurf ausgesetzt, seine Musik sein kitschig und trivial), energiegeladen, neoklassizistisch und mit technischen Schwierigkeiten gespickt das andere. - "Pletnev spielt seinen Part mit quasi schwereloser Souveränität, bietet vor allem eine durchdachte, perfekt phrasierte Ausdeutung des musikalischen Gehalts. Rostropowitsch befindet sich mit ihm in vollkommenem Einklang und hält den Orchesterklang sensibel schlank ... Das neue "Rach 3" übertrifft als pures Klangeschehen alle mir bekannten Vorgänger an Klarheit, Transparenz und Delikatesse" so der begeisterte Rezensent von Fono Forum (6/03)
