Giorgio Koukl’s survey of Tcherepnin’s inventive piano music continues with two 1950s collections that reflect a synthesis of his earlier technical and expressive innovations—the virtuosic Eight Pieces and the beguiling Expressions. These two cycles bracket a varied group of scores, from the youthful Feuilles libres through the restrained lyricism of the Préludes, and the quirky modernism of the Intermezzo and Tanz, to the relaxed songfulness of the Etudes, written following a concert tour of the Far East.


Review By Steve Arloff,MusicWeb International,August 2013

The excitement and wonder continue. What continues to amaze, delight and fascinate is the breadth of Tcherepnin’s invention. Couple this with the fact that, based on what I have heard, there is never a dull moment in anything he wrote nor any feeling that his material is either wasted or undeveloped.

Grand Piano, a Naxos label, is planning to release the remaining five discs in the series by the middle of 2014. They can’t do so quick enough as far as I’m concerned. Tcherepnin is so beguiling that listening to his music can become truly addictive and having to wait any length of time between ‘fixes’ is hard to do.
