Like Sergei Rachmaninov and Alexander Scriabin, Nikolai Medtner was one of the last great composer / pianists of the Romantic period and, like his Russian peers, he found the piano to be the center of his creative focus and compositional output. His music shows a broad understanding of the piano's capabilities as a most communicative instrument. This disc is strongly recommended as an excellent introduction to Medtner's piano music.
