This is the second of Brilliant's box sets devoted to Russian recordings from Evgeny Kissin. Labeled as early, these live concert performances from 1984 to 1990 carry us from the day after Kissin turned 13 (Mozart Cto. #12 K. 414) to age 18 (Mozart Cto. #20, K. 466), with most readings clustering in the range of 1985-89. Russians were well aware of the marvel in their midst; the pianist's American breakthrough occurred in 1990 when he debuted at Carnegie Hall's centennial season. No one since Richter, debuting almost thirty years before, had made such a heady entry, and Richter was past fifty when he came here (briefly, since he loathed American capitalism and the pace of life in our big cities).

Russia is vast, and so is this 25-disc tribute to the great piano school of Russia-from the long-famous icons to the more recent inheritors of this ineffably proud tradition. Vladimir Horowitz, Sviatoslav Richter, Emil Gilels, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Lazar Berman and many others display their subtly various approaches to phrasing and timbre as they perform the great works of the Russian canon and composers across Europe.

I collect Sofronitsky discs (he's really one of the greatest pianists of all time, in case you didn't already know), so let me first say something about the remastering quality. Brilliant Classics got rid of much noise and distortion at the cost of high frequencies (it all sounds "high-cut", making Sofronitsky less sprightly and colourful than he was), so these remasterings are sonically speaking not in the league of BMG's (in their own Russian Piano School series, or Philips's GPOC set) or Denon's (expensive, but inevitably the way to go if you want to get close to Sofronitsky's sonority - after all it's NOT all banging as some claim, he WAS a great colorist, and so thrillingly volatile), but they're as good as (albeit different from) those by Classound and Vista Vera (forget Arlecchino etc.).
