Editorial Reviews

Review

"Almaty, the largest city in Kazakhstan, plays a central role in this new CD release from one of the world s most talented pianists, Temirzhan Yerzhanov. He is the first pianist to emerge from Kazakhstan who has attracted such acclaim. Since earning his position on the world stage Temirzhan has toured Germany, Russia, Italy, France, Czech Republic, China, India, Switzerland, the UK, and the USA.

"The former capital city of Almaty is also linked to a period in the life of one of the major composers of the twentieth century, Sergei Prokofiev. Prokofiev was born in the Ukraine in 1891. During the Second World War he spent almost a year in Kazakhstan. It was a period in his life that saw a surge of creativity even by his prolific standards.

"In 2003 Temirzhan Yerzhanov attended a recital held in his home city, called Prokofiev, Almaty 1942-1943. The event featured three suites from Cinderella. The evening had a profound effect on the young piano virtuoso. For this, his second album, he pays his own homage to the great composer.

"One set of superlatives caught my eye amid [his] reviews gathered from all over the world says, "Temirzhan has performed Prokofiev with such precision, tenderness, and depth, it is as if the composer himself was at the piano."

"This is high praise indeed when you consider that Prokofiev was arguably one of the most accomplished pianists the world has ever seen. Expressions such as "unbelievable," "mastery," "stupendous," "breathtaking," "astounding," and "outstanding" populate the review sheet for this extraordinary talent.

...Symphony No. 1 Opus 25 ( Classical ). This is, surprisingly, the first time that this original transcription has ever been recorded. Temirzhan s breathtaking "Finale Molto Vivace" is a fitting place to end an album that more than underlines just why he has been receiving such widespread acclaim.

"All the superlatives have been used before and sadly there is no well of unused ones for me to explore in order to add my own. Suffice it to say that his is an extraordinary talent whose playing on this album is quite frankly nothing short of astonishing.

"Being labeled naturally gifted often belies the sheer dedication required to perform such intricate and challenging pieces as 'effortlessly' as this. What the term does say, however, is that Temirzhan s playing conveys a talent so at ease with the music, it is as though his deep understanding and respect for the compositions literally radiates from the very recording itself." --by Jeff Perkins, BlogCritics, April, 2009

"For most of Saturday's audience, the first half was the highpoint, thanks to returning guest pianist Temirzhan Yerzhanov and his essay on Chopin's Second Piano Concerto. Chopin, not Sibelius, got the evening's standing ovation. Why not? This handsome young Kazakh is an extremely technical pianist, a world-class specialist in Schumann and the Russians, and his charisma radiated romantic passion through the hall." --The Tribune, San Luis Obispo

"As Yerzhanov's fingertips were bouncing on the keys, the melodies presented tenacious strength in an repressive atmosphere which nurtured power. Its power accumulated and increased... upon completing a piece, the audience was deeply intoxicated by the impact of the music, the large auditorium was pin-dropping quiet with only the resonance of the piano music." --Yantai Daily, China
