SHOSTAKOVICH: 24 PRELUDES Op. 34 & PIANO QUINTET Op. 57
With his "mature sound, seemingly full of wisdom" (Süddeutsche Zeitung), his sensible, delicately balanced touch, and his interpretive maturity, Michail Lifits casts a spell over audience and press alike.
After two highly acclaimed recordings of Mozart and Schubert, Michail Lifits now dedicates himself to the masterworks of Dmitri Shostakovich: the humorous and enigmatic 24 Preludes, Op. 34, and one of the best-loved chamber music pieces, the Piano Quintet, Op. 57.
"Mr. Lifits offered an exciting performance"
The New York Times
OFFICIAL CD TRAILER
“Here is a young pianist at work who clearly is not made of grand gestures, glamour or media coverage. (...) One may confidently expect very much from this pianist."
MICHAIL LIFITS IS STEINWAY ARTIST
Ahen I think about Steinway, a quote by Oscar Wilde imidiately comes to mind:
'I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best'.
