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

"Bei der Interpretation durch die Nürnberger Symphoniker unter Leitung ihres Chefs Alexander Shelley bekommt man es eher mit einem auffallend lichten, schlanken Sound zu tun. Transparenz geht hier eindeutig vor Masse. Zu dieser Philosophie passen die Solisten bestens. Erik Schumann (Jahrgang 1982) ist ein souveräner Geigenlyriker, der viel Gefühl investiert. Sehr schön das Leuchten in der Höhe, etwa im langsamen Satz. Und beim a-Moll-Doppelkonzert, dem stets ein Quäntchen Pathos innewohnt, mit dem 1988 geborenen Cellisten Mark Schumann zeigt sich: Die beiden Brüder agieren musikalisch auf einer Wellenlänge. Solistische Leidenschaft tritt zutage. Alle bleiben dran. Die Nürnberger Symphoniker spielen engagiert und werkdienlich. Da wird ein sehr gültiger Feinschliff zweier Brahms-Brocken abgeliefert" (Badische Zeitung)
