"To some of us, Nikolai Medtner produced some of the most melodic and finely crafted piano music of the last century. And yet mention Russia's contribution to classical music and few will mention his name at all. Fewer still, in the same breath as his more famous countrymen.
Nonetheless, this is art, not a popularity contest. So, give Medtner a listen: you'll be surprised (and amazed) at his perfectly balanced, extremely virtuostic and sensitive voice. Who knows? In time, you, too, might find yourself wondering how so many have overlooked this musical genius.
This collection is the perfect first step in your discovery of Medtner. It presents you, the Medtner novice, with two important tools: the perfect guide (in Milne) and a good cross section of his oeuvre. All you've got to do is sit back and enjoy.
