Founded in 1937, the annual Queen Elisabeth Competition for violin and piano is still the best-known such event organised in Belgium, and is considered among the best and most demanding in the world. Following in the footsteps of his fellow countryman Emil Gilels, who won first prize for piano in 1938, Mikhail Faerman stunned both jury and public in 1975 with Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto, and duly carried off the palm.

A Russian composer whose modernity seems to be inherent in him rather than something artificial or over-intellectualized. His natural feeling for melody and rhythm – by turns humorous (Peter and the Wolf), lyrical (Concerto for Piano & Orchestra no. 3), elegiac (Visions fugitives), aggressive (Scythian Suite), or all of the above (Lieutenant Kije Suite) – is wedded to a desire for direct communication with the listener and a quality of continually interesting invention.

Myaskovsky’s two cello sonatas are woefully neglected works and deserve far wider circulation – romantic and passionate they make a worthy alternative to Rachmaninov’s famous sonata. Coming from the early and late years of the composer’s life, the 2nd sonata was written for Rostropovitch, who championed it and ensured all his pupils studied and learned it. Prokofiev’s Ballade op15 is an expansive work from his early years and like the Myaskovsky sonatas rarely heard. Pavel Gomziakov and Andrei Korobeinikov are persuasive advocates for these delightful works.
