                      “Editor’s Choice”
A shining new talent forces you to listen to these concertos anew… Here is music making to wonder at. Rarely can the two concertos have been performed with such meticulous care and affection….PentaTone’s sound and balance are exemplary and I can scarcely wait to hear such a sensitive, personal and meticulous young pianist in the widest possible repertoire.”

Bryce Morrison

Gramophone

“The fidelity, clarity and impact of Schlimé’s SACD version makes the standard CD sound dull and opaque in comparison. Not to mention the added spatial impression of actually being in the Grand Hall of Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Conservatory, where the recording was made. He also puts a knowing twist on the jazzier passages of the Ravel.

John Sunier

                   Classical CD of the Week

“Schlimé brings flair, care and imagination, matched by the crisp, translucent playing of the Russian National Orchestra conducted by one of his mentors, Mikhail Pletnev.”

Geoffrey Norris
 

Telegraph.co.uk

“Francesco Tristano Schlimé is a 25-year-old pianist whose work has been praised for its extraordinary depth and maturity. He was born in Luxembourg in 1981 and attended conservatories in Brussels, Paris and Luxembourg before entering Juilliard. He is a protégé of Mikhail Pletnev with whom he continues to study. Schlimé has been composing since childhood and has written jazz works for solo piano and jazz ensembles. He also explores his interest in improvisation. The imaginative programme on this SACD has been well chosen to showcase all these aspects of his undoubted talent….The DSD recording is up to Pentatone’s usual high standard and captures the acoustic of the Grand Hall of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire admirably, particularly in the surround sound layer.”

Graham Williams

“Prokofiev’s Fifth Piano Concerto would challenge the greatest virtuosi, but Schlime is a star in the making and is more than equal to the work.”

Rick Jones

The Times

“Refreshingly, the performances are unforced and poetic rather than brilliant, and the exceptionally fine-grained recording underlines atmospheric delicacy.”

Alan G. Artner

Chicago Tribune

“Young pianist Francesco Tristano Schlimé understands all the different facets of this music, and plays with a facile technique and a cool, clear lyricism that are just what these works seem to need. Conductor Mikhail Pletnev, himself a virtuoso pianist, accompanies with uncanny perception and precision, and the Russian National Orchestra responds with excellent playing….The sound is typical for PentaTone: bright and clear, with exemplary balances and superb dynamic range. The two-channel tracks are crisp; the multichannel ones have greater warmth and presence.”
