This album is taken from live performances in England between 2000 and 2005 by Russian pianist Sergei Dukachev and includes the Second and Seventh Sonatas, Visions Fugitives, and extracts from the copmposer's piano transcription of 'Romeo and Juliet'. Dukachev is gaining an enthusiastic following in the UK as well as in his native Russia, and the brilliance of these concert performances demonstrates why.

review extracts: for full reviews click here

“Interesting in many ways... that they are performed by a Russian pianist somehow adds extra Russian taste. Mr Dukachev [has] trademark Russian pianistic technique – steely tone, masculine power and glitzy virtuosity... meticulous attention to the structural elements of the music. Music lovers may well wish to put [this] on their CD shelves” – Danny Kim-Nam Hui (ConcertoNet – joint review with 25096)

“A far reaching overview of Prokofiev's output. Pianist Sergei Dukachev finds the Russianism within each work and places it front and center, His playing is constantly at the music's service. If you are looking for an all-in-one neat little package of the piano works of Prokofiev, you can't do much better than this.” – Jean-Yves Duperron (Classical Music Sentinel)

“[The works on this disc] make a splendid coupling, and I admired the virility and poetry couched in superlative ambience.” - Bill Newman (Daily Classical Music)
