Manufacturer Description

.Label: Sony Classical.Published: 1999

To describe Arcadi Volodos as a pianistic phenomenon would be to do him a gross injustice. True, he has one of the most dazzling techniques to be heard anywhere in the world today (just sample the Liszt 15th Hungarian Rhapsody as doctored by another pianistic wizard, Vladimir Horowitz, or the outrageous Liberace-style Variations on Mendelssohn's Wedding March a true hotch-potch of a composition, basically composed by Liszt with frills and furbelows added by Horowitz and Volodos himself). That is one side of Volodos, and if you venture too close you'll risk aural whiplash. The other side is an intense musicality, an improbable range of colours and a fabulous singing tone (it's probably no coincidence that he at one point actually studied singing)--just try the two Rachmaninov Etudes-tableaux or his deeply moving reading of Schumann's Bunte Blätter. The live recording is very good and the audience extraordinarily quiet (except for laughter in the Wedding March festivities). Unquestionably one of the great piano recitals. --Harriet Smith
