In Chester CT Events, Music on November 7, 2010 at 6:41 am

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 14 at 5:00 p.m., Mark your calendar for Collomore’s next fall performance, Russian pianist, Vassily Primakov known in the international music scene as a pianist of world-class importance.

In recent years, Vassily Primakov has been hailed as a pianist of world class importance. Gramophone wrote that “Primakov’s empathy with Chopin’s spirit could hardly be more complete,” and the American Record Guide stated: “Since Gilels, how many pianists have the right touch? In Chopin, no one currently playing and recording sounds as good as this! This is a great Chopin pianist.”  Music Web-International called Primakov’s Chopin concertos CD “one of the great Chopin recordings of recent times.  These are performances of extraordinary power and beauty.” In 1999, as a teen-aged prizewinner of the Cleveland International Piano Competition, Primakov was praised by Donald Rosenberg of the Cleveland Plain Dealer: “How many pianists can make a line sing as the 19-year-old Moscow native did on this occasion? Every poignant phrase took ethereal wing. Elsewhere the music soared with all of the turbulence and poetic vibrancy it possesses. We will be hearing much from this remarkable musician.”
