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.

Recorded live at the Small Hall of the Moscow Conservatory on September 29, 2016.

Firma Melodiya presents Low Strings, the first release from the Melodiya Apriori series.
For the past twenty-five years, a Russian label hasn’t released a project as uncommon and tricky as this. It is absolutely beyond the conventional notion of “chamber music recording,” neither by instrumental lineup (a viola, a cello and a double bass - it’s hardly the most advantageous of combinations that coincides lay belief), nor by selection of the music genres and styles. Matthew Locke, a representative of early English Baroque, Beethoven with his comic “eyeglasses” duet, his contemporary Bernhard Romberg, and next to them Alfred Schnittke, Vladimir Ryabov and composers of West European avant-garde with electronics attached.
The artistic will of the performers is perhaps the principal consolidating point of the album. It first of all applies to violist, organizer and enlightener Serge Poltavsky who united the effort of cellist Evgeny Rumyantsev, double bass player Grigory Krotenko (his role in the recording of the album is one of the leading ones) and sound engineer of the Moscow Conservatory and creator of the single sonic space of the Low Strings Mikhail Spassky.
It is also gratifying to hear not a distilled studio work, but live concert sound recorded at the Small Hall of the Moscow Conservatory in 2016. So, Melodiya, as it did many years ago, documents the recent past again. The fact itself makes us confident that this recording will find its listener.
