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

5 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout a life dedicated to music, Richter maintained a stubborn silence about his own ideals and aspirations. Here at last he opens up his heart, both in an exceptional interview, and in his private musical Journals." "Bruno Monsaingeon - renowned for his documentary films - became close to Richter not long before the pianist's death in 1995, and assembled the memories of his childhood, and his early career for the film on which this book is based. Richter recounts what it was like to be an 'artist of the people', his meetings with Russian performers and composers - Oistrakh, Rostoprovich, Gilels, Prokoviev, Shostakovich - and his rise to international acclaim." "The pianist's personal Journals, kept for nearly thirty years, constitute an unparalleled witness to the music of our time. He notes with precision, humour and clarity his reactions to concerts, operas, fellow musicians - even his own recordings. Richter is uninhibitedly himself. These are the private thoughts of a nonconformist, one of the greatest performers of the century, yet one whose life was bound inextricably to the history of the USSR."--Jacket
