“Denis Matsuev’s name has inspired awe and amazement in musical circles,” wrote Gramophone magazine, “for here is a virtuoso in the grandest of grand Russian traditions … He literally possesses the sort of technique which begins where others end.” Making one his regular visits to the Verbier Festival, Denis Matsuev offers a panorama of Romanticism from Beethoven’s final piano sonata, composed in the early 1820s, to Rachmaninoff’s Variations on a theme of Corelli, dating from 1931.  Tchaikovsky’s lovely Méditation offers an interlude before the final work in the recital, Liszt’s mightily rhetorical Sonata in B minor.
