Dmitry Borisovich Kabalevsky was a prolific composer of piano music and chamber music; many of his piano works have been performed by the likes of Vladimir Horowitz. He is probably best known in the West for the "Comedians Galop" from The Comedians Suite, Op. 26. In general, Kabalevsky was not as adventurous as his contemporaries in terms of harmony and preferred a more conventional diatonicism, interlaced with chromaticism and major-minor interplay.

Franz Liszt's two piano concertos and the 12 Transcendental Studies have long proved a challenge for all great piano virtuosos. Turin-born Alessandro Ambrosoli studied with Lazar Berman and delivers these demanding pieces with brilliant virtuosity, proving himself the equal of many renowned soloists from the past. He performs on this recording with the St. Petersburg Northern Sinfonia Orchestra, conducted by Fabio Mastrangelo, another up-and-coming artist.

Jorge Bolet - the last gentleman of the piano: Cuban-American pianist Jorge Bolet (1914-1990), misleadingly labeled the "last Romantic" among 20th century pianists and marketed under this title when he achieved world fame at the end of his career, was first and foremost a gentleman of the piano. Few pianists interpreted the great piano music of the 19th and early 20thcenturies with such unerring stylistic assurance and technical mastery that was at the same time completely free of vanity and striving for effect.

It was an eminently sensible decision to couple Zimerman's previously separate Chopin concertos on a single CD. The Ax/Ormandy/RCA disc is the only rival as a coupling, so let me say at once that in different moods I would be equally happy with either.

Deep in the heart of the Cold War, there was once a miracle in Moscow – Texas-based classical pianist Van Cliburn, of whom no one had heard, conquered at the First Tchaikovsky Competition, an event set aside to showcase Soviet talent. Cliburn was warned by his own government not to go, given the tense political relationship between the United States and Soviet Union at the time, and once he arrived he was greeted as a party crasher, subject to hostile stares and animosity of the kind he had never dreamed of back in Texas. And it was Cliburn, at the end, which brought down the house, and held the award. Back in America, he was greeted with a ticker tape parade and was the subject of a best-selling biography by Abram Chasins, The Van Cliburn Story, copies of which continue to clog the shelves of American thrift stores five decades hence. Ultimately, though, Cliburn's celebrity lost its luster. Nerves, ultra-picky perfectionism, and mishandling by management led to his early retirement from the concert scene; his greatest latter-day achievement being the force behind the Van Cliburn Piano Competition, America's most prestigious such event.

The Finnish musician is known for delivering fresh, visionary readings of popular standard repertoire music, such as Beethoven's concertos which he had never recorded before.

Also a published composer, Mustonen is playing his own cadenzas in the First Concerto.

With this two-disc set of the piano quartets, Nicholas Angelich proves conclusively that he is the best Brahms pianist of his generation. His previous Brahms recordings – a 2005 disc of the violin sonatas with Renaud Capuçon, a 2006 solo collection featuring the Paganini Variations, a 2007 solo collection of the late piano works, and a 2008 disc of the First Piano Concerto with Paavo Järvi leading the Frankfurt Radio Symphony – showed his skill in a variety of settings.
