One of the most glittering of the new generation of pianists, Alexander Karpeyev continues the great tradition of Russian musicianship with commanding technique and breathtaking finesse.

Here, he explores the many textures and tonalities of Romantic piano works, including Schumann’s passionate but little-known Sonata No 3 and miniature tone poems by Medtner, with whose work Karpeyev is particularly identified.
