Nicolai Yakovlevich Miaskovsky

Piano Sonata No. 4 in C minor, Op. 27 (revised version)

Piano Sonata No.5 in B major Op.64/1 (revised version)

Prelude & Rondo-Sonata Op.58 (‘Song & Rhapsody’)

Sonatine in E minor Op.57


Murray McLachlan (Piano)

“the playing – intelligent and competent as before……the Fourth Sonata is at least, by my reckoning, easily the finest of the six….capturing the idealistic fervour of the early Soviet era in an idiom coloured by Scriabin, Prokofiev…..this is precisely the kind of enterprise that young artists and small companies should be encouraged to pursue.” ((c) Gramophone) “middle of the Sonatine is dark and pessimistic, quite haunting. McLachlan writes of the “enormous tactile pleasure” for the performer…his playing is both authoratative and persuasive. Perhaps this is the record to try first as both the sonatas .. are of interest and substance” (Penguin Guide 3 stars)
