5.0 out of 5 stars The man with the golden sound! December 14, 2009
Shura Cherkkasky was one the most emblematic pianists of the XX century. Owner of a golden sound, bright articulation, superb fingering and inspired lyric flight. He achieved that coveted balance between introspection and expressiveness without ostentation or simple pyrotechnic exhibitionism. He always stood aloof from the great international stages and his presence in Salzburg in 1953 is still reminded as one of the three most unforgettable of that decade (the other two were Geza Anda and Rudolf Firkusny).

This CD is a true kaleidoscopic journey. Since the practically unknown "Touches" of Leonard Bernstein, until the intimate Schubert's sonata Op. 120. To my view, it will be hard to listen performances capable to surpass the interpretative eloquence such as Chopin's Variations on La ci darem la Mano and his extraordinary performance of the paraphrases on Eugene Oneguin. Exuberance, majestic elegance and colossal pianism so typical of the last wave of the missing approach of the late Romanticism in which the personal expression was by far much more important than the Faustian technique that has become the last goal of the last five decades of pianists, pitifully.

Cherkassky has exerted a notable influence over renowned pianists in the actuality : Three names? Grigori Sokolov, Michael Rudy and in lesser degree Arkadi Volodos.

A must-have, because it explores and ranks a set of four composers so distant in styles, conceptions and periods like Bernstein, Schubert,Pabst and Chopin.
