This first volume of Alexander Tcherepnin's extensive list of works for piano takes us from some of his earliest works as a precocious Russian teenager, through to significant and intensely expressive compositions. From the vitally youthful picture stories of the Bagatelles, through the remarkable Sonatas to the exploratory late Ascension, each work is a gold mine of astoundingly inventive and distinctively individual craftsmanship.

The program demonstrates Tcherepnin's mastery of the miniature and the monumental, speaking to the heart from a basis in the Romantic tradition. Tcherepnin's is a voice which stands comparison with Prokofiev and at times Rachmaninov, but the over-riding impression is of striking individuality and compelling inventiveness. A lifelong pioneer in new composition techniques, Tcherepnin was also an enthusiastic internationalist whose fascination with folk idioms brought him through Eurasian culture to Far Eastern influences, earning him the sobriquet"Musical Citizen of the World".

GiORGIO KOUKL
Giorgio Koukl is a pianist/harpsichordist and composer based in Lugano, Switzerland. Born in Prague, he studied at the State Music School and Conservatory before moving to Switzerland1968 and continuing his studies at the Conservatories of Zurich and Milan. Koukl's complete recordings of Martinu's piano music for Naxos have been critically acclaimed as"a delight" (Gramophone) and"estimable and important" (MusicWeb International). Tcherepnin belonged to the same Parisian group of composers as Martinu, and Koukl's effortless technique and expertise with this fascinating repertoire make him a perfect advocate for this composer's remarkable music.
