On this second volume of Anton Rubinstein’s piano music, GRAMMY®-nominated pianist Joseph Banowetz interprets works spanning the composer’s long career, from the famous Melody in F, written by the 23-year-old Rubinstein to the nostalgic Souvenir of Dresden composed in the year of his death. Russian Serenade is a charming vision of the composer’s homeland, the Romance and Impromptu a pair contrasting the lyrical and virtuosic, while Akrostichon No. 1 is a gently understated love poem. Volume 1 (8.570941) is also available.


   




Review By James Harrington,American Record Guide,November 2010

Banowetz continues his series of the piano music of Anton Rubinstein (1852–94), an important figure in the development of Russian music and the Russian school of piano playing. Last issue I reviewed another volume in this series (Naxos 8.570941) and was impressed with Banowetz and his heroic efforts on Rubinstein’s huge Theme and Variations, which I found too long. The material here is short pieces and movements, all three to seven minutes long—and much more to my liking. A wide variety of moods and styles is found here, and again the pianistic abilities of a mature, dedicated artist like Banowetz present the music in the best light. All except the two Melodies (including the most famous one in
