Andrei Korobeinikov piano
The Russian pianist creates a programme full of incantatory nostalgia ranging from Schubert to one of Liszt’s finest works.

Like fellow Russian Evgeny Kissin, Korobeinikov, who is in his thirties, is a hugely talented pianist (with no fewer than twenty competition wins to his credit) and a fine young mind (he is a qualified lawyer and has published several legal textbooks, notably on intellectual property law). Here he leaves Slavonic shores (he is one of the current great interpreters of Scriabine and Shostakovich) in favour of a grand Romantic journey with Schubert and with Liszt’s Sonata in B minor, perhaps the composer’s most accomplished work for the piano, whose architecture is worthy of a symphonic poem whose fullness and power it anticipates. This is the Holy Grail of the Romantic piano repertoire.
