Editorial Reviews

My hand was operated on once and it left me with a second lifeline. And it took. What I mean to say is: I know something about second lives, which may be one reason I relate so well to the performer who has given us this collection of recorded music. Charles Szczepanek has been playing the piano since he was three and surprisingly soon thereafter was winning every piano competition he entered. But the Chicago, Illinois native originally did not even consider a career as a concert pianist. A math whiz, he fell in love with engineering and was already deeply into it by the age of twelve. But at fourteen he heard Russian Vladimir Feltsman play the Third Piano Concerto of Rachmaninoff in Wheaton College s huge Edmund Chapel, and Charles walked out unable to stop smiling. That was the epiphany which has shone its light over the years subsequent, and which illumines the recording you are about to hear. It has been my pleasure to become personally acquainted with Mr. Charles Szczepanek in recent years. He's an intriguing fellow who can generate the impression of irresistible force without saying much. I've never known anyone quite like him. And in addition to his obvious and various talents in general, I have it on the best authority that the composer listed second in his collection is uniquely impressed by Szczepanek's grasp of his formidable material. It stands to reason; Charles Szczepanek is himself a wonderful composer. Paul Harvey Jr.

What stunning talent! Charles Szczepanek delivers a truly moving performance of the works of the Franz Liszt and Paul Aurandt. The simultaneity of technical precision and genuine emotional content is quite masterful. Through Szczepanek's music, a portrait of the romantic drama of Liszt and the battle of the dragon in the Aurandt is clearly painted. This is definitely one of the best recordings I have had the pleasure of hearing in quite some time.
