Drawn from different parts of Tchrepnin’s life, the Entretiens display distinct cinematic qualities. With their exhaustive range of expression the Twelve Preludes vividly demonstrate the multi-faceted genius of their composer. The Romances contrast tenderness and warmth with unsettling moods and the Five Concert Etudes show an infatuation with all things Chinese.
**** (Excellent Album) *** (Good Sound)
Michel Fleury - Classica magazine (France) - April 2014
"The superlative standard of both the music and the playing continues to enthral... As with the previous three discs Giorgio Koukl is the perfect advocate and it is hard to imagine that his interpretations will be surpassed. He inhabits the composer as he plays and it is as if Tcherepnin were playing the works himself. This is another adorable disc of scintillating music brilliantly played and cannot be praised highly enough."
