Russian Rhapsody. Suites for four-hand piano, works for two pianos

Brigitte Engerer, Oleg Maisenberg


‘To make this complete recording, Brigitte Engerer has found an excellent partner in the Russian émigré pianist Oleg Maisenberg. In fact, its success is very much due to this combination of two strong but complementary temperaments, which convey to the full the two sides of Rachmaninov’s output, Russian and Western. ’ [Compact]
‘Virtuosity is at its peak here.’ [Télérama]
‘Engerer and Maisenberg are wholly successful.’ [Gramophone]
with Elena Bachkirova
