Sergey Lyapunov's Piano Concerto No. 2 deserves a place among the great Romantic piano concertos, while the Rhapsody on Ukrainian Themes bears the imprint of Liszt's virtuosic pianistic style. As a Russian Nationalist composer, Lyapunov was strongly influenced by Mily Balakirev, leader of the 'Mighty Handful' of composers, to whom he dedicated his Glinka Prize-winning Piano Concerto No. 1. The young Georgian pianist Shorena Tsintsabadze, a graduate of Moscow's Tchaikovsky Conservatory, joins the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Dmitry Yablonsky, whose Naxos discography includes many acclaimed albums of Russian and Romantic repertoire.
