The performance of Chopin’s Scherzos by Nikolai Petrov is passionate and inspired. His brilliant pianism shows itself not only in his phenomenal technique and frantic vigor creating an unbelievable inner tension, but also in the startling differentiation of the dynamic spectrum, unrivaled knowledge of all of its grades, from a barely-heard pianissimo to a monumental fortissimo. Petrov’s interpretation, in which the pianist retaining his delicate touch and utmost self-control “goes all out”, making the listener survive all the drama of these works at the deepest emotional level, as a direct actor in the event.


The virtuoso romantic Fantasia (1830-33) of Mendelssohn is
the fusion of the Classicist and the Romanticist is excellently conveyed in the interpretation of Nikolai Petrov: harmonious balance of interpretation, amazing warmth and cordiality of the sound, and brilliant virtuosity of piano playing.

Such infrequently performed opuses as Mendelssohn’s Fantasia and Brahms’s Handel Variations take a worthy place in the vast repertoire of Nikolai Petrov. His inspired attitude towards music of Romanticist composers, sensitive and deep insight when dealing with the text, strictness, and sweep may serve as a reference for performance of Romanticist music.
