Kirill Gerstein, recipient of the prestigious 2010 Gilmore Artist Award, is one of today‘s most intriguing young musicians. For his solo debut album on myrios classics, he has recorded a spellbinding performance of Liszt‘s Sonata in B minor and Schumann‘s Humoreske. Gerstein plays a crystalline, vibrant rendering of these key works with an even balance of furiousness and finesse. The disc also includes the world premiere recording of Oliver Knussen‘s enchanting composition „Ophelia‘s Last Dance“ from 2010.
