The following words of the composer himself may serve as a key to performance of Chopin’ works, “After all the difficulties have been overcome and a great number of notes have been played, simplicity appears in all its charm, as the ultimate summit of art. One has to toil hard, to do an immense work to reach this goal...” Nikolai Petrov not only displays model performance of Chopin’s ballads, skillfully conveying all the richest sound palette of the great Romanticist; his interpretation strikes with emotion and philosophical depth, sincerity and genuineness of feeling, and delivery of Chopin’s deep cordiality in music that cannot bear any slight formality in performance. Petrov’s flawless pianism is as natural as breathing, and his inimitable touch, a distinctive mark of the great Russian piano school, lets you fully enjoy the subtlest nuances of Chopinian masterpieces, the charm and poetry of Chopinian sound.


Brahms’s innovation is especially noticeable in his piano miniatures distinguished by subtle fragmentation of themes and multifaceted, contrapuntally developed texture. The composer assigned an auxiliary role to technique, avoiding meaningless virtuoso concert effects, but he could manage the instrument’s expressive resources like no one else.
In his pieces of the last period of composing, Capriccio and Intermezzo, intimate facets of the composer’s mental life are disclosed. Attitudes are conveyed flexibly and with utmost terseness, and the complex content is expressed with sparing tools, and primarily with a “speaking” turn of melodies. . As performed by Nikolai Petrov, the element of exalted romantics and psychological subtleties are combined with the power and dense sound of Brahmsian texture. The pianist's interpretation shows not only depth, but also a harmonious concept: Nikolai Petrov turns the entire composition of separate independent pieces into a single whole, into a through-composed Romanticist form based on contrasts of moods and tempos and united with a coordination of tonalities considered by Brahms himself.

Live Recording.
Recorded in 1949 (15, 16);
1950 (2-8; 19-24);
1952 (12, 14); 1953 (17, 18);
1951 (1, 13)

Presented on this disc are recordings of 1949-1953 made at the recitals in the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory: Partita No. 1 and Prelude from Well Tempered Clavier of Bach, Sonata in C minor of Mozart, Scarlatti’s Sonata, Beethoven’s Bagatelle in E flat major, Mendelssohn’s Scherzo, and pieces by Chopin and Prokofiev.
The music of Bach had a special place in Gilels’s creativity. “He was probably the first composer that really excited me still in my early childhood,” said the pianist about Bach. However, he was most interested in his organ music (according to himself, there was a time when he was even going to study organ playing). Therefore, he included transcriptions on his programs much more often than original piano compositions. Still more interesting is the unique recording of Bach’s Partita (Gilels’s heritage contains no other recording of it).
Another author of that epoch whom the pianist willingly addressed was Scarlatti. He used to include his sonatas in the uncompleted cycle “History of Piano Sonata.”
Gilels’s addressing Mozart should be specially noted. It seemed unexpected to many critics, for Gilels was primarily apprehended as a virtuoso for a long time. The tragic Sonata in C minor is a masterpiece in Gilels’s heritage.
Generally, he often surprised critics. For instance, by his Chopin interpretations (a reviewer commented in 1972 that “accurate and disciplined Gilels went into a state of ecstatic frenzy” when performing the First Ballad of Chopin). Presented here are his recordings of Nocturne in C minor, Second Impromptu, and two etudes of Chopin.
Beethoven was of greatest importance for Gilels. For example, he performed the whole set of the Beethoven concertos; in the last years of his life, he started recording all of Beethoven’s piano sonatas and variations, but had no time to finish the work. The Bagatelle in this recording is also unique.
Mendelssohn’s music was with Gilels throughout his life, starting from the very first recital. Presented here is Scherzo from Op. 16.
Gilels played much of music contemporary to him, and Soviet music in particular. His interpretations of Prokofiev were brilliant (by the way, he was the premiere performer of the Eighth Sonata). Presented on this CD are two Prokofiev recordings, pieces from the Visions Fugitives cycle and Toccata.

Harp throuth time,across civilizations.
What captivating enchantment the harp has crated over the period of more than 5000 years! What power it has, for all the fragility of its structure! It is shaped rather like a wing. Its sound is ethereal yet penetrating: its soft sweetness has considerable caring-power.
Harp…What comes first to our mind when we think about the harp?

At later stage gipsy singers abandoned traditional popular songs in favor of Russian romances. The Russian composers of that time pretty often used diverse national melodic elements - Spanish, Italian, Oriental - and imitated correspondent performance manner, gipsy way of singing, in the fi rst place. Its emphatic expression, drastic change of themes, excessive emotions and passionate openness were extremely genuine and original. Nowadays brilliant Russian romances - “Blue Eyes”, “Long Road”, “Don’t Rush Your Horses, Coachman” and many others - are defi nitely associated with gipsy way of singing and sung by gipsy ensembles on a regular basis.
The CD presents the authentic phenomenon in all its diversity. Different singers and variously composed ensembles present their own interpretation of Russian romances, town songs at the turn of XIX-XX centuries, modern songs related to gipsy fate. But easily recognizable singing manner of Russian gipsies pierces the whole album.
