 Murray McLachlan Piano


McLachlan has long had a fine reputation as a performer of Russian music, as well as championing briliant but little-known composers such as Williamson and Chisholm (see the composer index). On this CD, he presents the Piano Sonatas nos 1 and 2 by Shostakovich with works by composers in his circle; though not Russian, the piece by Roland Stevenson is included both because it is based on Shostakovich’s name, but also because Stevenson, politically, can genuinely be called a ’comrade’ of those devoted to Socialism but fighting the Stalinist regime.

“Extremely generously-filled disc is the first of a series... judging from this initial helping, there is much that one can discover and enjoy. McLachlan plays with intensity and affirmation and his razor-sharp articulation helps to make a persuasive case for this challenging music. An auspicious start to what should be a hugely stimulating cycle, with notes and sound which are both first rate.”

“A fine demonstration of McLachlan’s virtuosity and stamina. Recommended.”

Peter Grahame Woolf

Musical Pointers

"[McLachlan] continues his musical excavations in fine style... he has Russian music as a prime love and it shows in his playing. A real find for those that want to expand horizons with a tour guide that loves his work.”
