Mikhail Pletnev’s Magic

I confess that I do not listen to pianist Mikhail Pletnev all that often.

However, whenever I do hear him play I am always impressed by his excellence.

On this recording we get to enjoy the following:

BEETHOVEN: Piano Sonata in A Major, Op. 2, No. 2;

BACH (arr. Busoni): Chaconne from Partita No. 2 in d minor;

CHOPIN (arr. Liszt): The Maiden’s Wish, Op. 74, No. 1;

TCHAIKOVSKY: Nocturne in c-sharp minor, Op. 19, No. 4;

SCHUBERT: Impromptu No. 2 in E-flat Major; Impromptu No. 3 in G-flat Major, D. 899

All performed by Mikhail Pletnev, piano

Here is Mr. Pletnev in a recording of the Beethoven Moonlight Sonata:
