Firma Melodiya presents an album of piano music by contemporary Russian composers performed by Lukas Geniušas, a prize-winner of the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition.

The young pianist is one of the brightest musical talents of today. A student of Vera Gornostayeva, he is a worthy continuer of the great traditions of domestic piano art that date back to the time of Heinrich Neuhaus. At his age of 25, he is an owner of numerous prestigious international awards, including silver medals of two of Europe’s renowned piano tournaments - the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw (2011) and the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow (2015). Critics have noted the maturity and depth of the pianist’s art, and the convincingness of his renditions of pieces written in different ages - from Handel to Hindemith. Geniušas’s recordings have been released on NIFC, Art Classic, DUX and Piano Classics. The Fryderyk Chopin Institute previously released a double album of his Chopin recordings, and the Moscow Conservatory released a live recording of the pianist’s recital dedicated to Rachmaninoff’s anniversary.

This time Lukas Geniušas presents piano cycles of today’s Russian composers - Leonid Desyatnikov, Valery Arzumanov and Vladimir Ryabov. The featured works were composed in the second half of the 1980s in the vein of the aesthetics of the “new simplicity.” At the same time the music captures a complicated era of total reappraisal of values that was going on in those years in the life and arts of this country. The pianist also provides commentary on the programme of the album.

Firma Melodiya presents an album of young but already world renowned musicians, violinist Aylen Pritchin and pianist Lukas Geniušas.
A native of St. Petersburg, Aylen Pritchin graduated from the Moscow Conservatory where he studied with professor and People’s Artist of the USSR Eduard Grach. Aylen is a winner of numerous awards and prizes, including a special prize of the judges of the XIV Tchaikovsky International Competition in 2011 and a grand prix of the Long-Thibaud Competition in 2014.
He is a scholarship holder of the New Names and Russian Performing Art foundations, and a participant of the Stars of the 21st Century project of the Moscow Philharmonic Society.
The name of Lukas Geniušas became known in wide quarters of domestic music lovers after he received a silver medal at the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 2010. In 2015, the pianist was awarded the second prize of the XV Tchaikovsky International Competition and won rave reviews from the critics. A grandson of the famous pianist and professor
Vera Gornstayeva, Lukas Geniušas received his first contest award at the age of twelve. Today he plays concerts at the most prestigious venues of the world.
“It was clear right from his first touch upon the keyboard - we have a world class pianist before us … a remarkable and mature master with unforeseen prospects of a developing talent,” wrote a well-known critic about Lukas Geniušas. Aylen Pritchin and Lukas Geniušas perform works by Russian composers of the 19th and 20th centuries: Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s minicycle Souvenir d’un lieu cher, violin transcriptions of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet suites (co-written with Samuel Dushkin) and Leonid Desyatnikov’s Like the Old Organ-Grinder.

Firma Melodiya presents a premiere of a unique work of 20th century Russian music - 24 Preludes and Fugues by Vsevolod Zaderatsky.
To say that the composer’s fate was tragic means to say nothing. A composer, pianist and conductor, Zaderatsky went through all circles of Soviet hell - arrests, imprisonments, Gulag, exiles, persecution for “formalism”… However, nothing could crush the man’s mighty craving for creation. He wrote his main work in the period of 1937 to 1939 in a prison camp in Kolyma using telegraph forms as music paper…
A representative of Taneyev’s school, Zaderatsky was perhaps the only composer who ventured upon continuation of his teacher’s polyphonic tradition. Zaderatsky revived Bach’s tradition on his own even before Hindemith and Shostakovich created their cycles of the kind. Here, the timehonoured form is combined with a quite peculiar interpretation of “tonal” thinking. At the same time, the composer’s style is a synthesis of the most significant achievements in the music of the first half of the last century.
Vsevolod Zaderatsky’s works began to draw attention of musicians and the public as late as in the 21st century. The 24 Preludes and Fugues were performed entirely for the first time in 2014 in Moscow. Now they have been put on record by a group of young pianists, prize-winners of international competitions and prominent representatives of performing art of their generation. We are pleased to present Ksenia Bashmet, Yuri Favorin, Nikita Mndoyants, Lukas Geniušas, Andrei Gugnin and Andrei Yaroshinsky.
