Wise pianists fear Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto, one of the most fiendishly difficult pieces ever composed for the instrument. Alexander Gavrylyuk, “as vivid and characterful as he is dextrous” (Gramophone), is suited to summon Rachmaninoff’s fireworks.

Later, Scriabin's Le Poème de l'extase (The Poem of Ecstasy) is a metaphysical romp once described by author Henry Miller as “a far-off comic itch … like a bath of ice, cocaine, and rainbows.”

Markus Stenz leads an exceptionally delicate score — its balances and pauses fragile and exposed — with naturalness and a sense of spontaneity. ”
