Andrei Gavrilov

Andrei Gavrilov - Complete Recordings on Deutsche Grammophon (10CD)

Several long-deleted albums reissued in this comprehensive survey of Andrei Gavrilov’s DG career: superbly engineered recordings of a pianist in the great Russian tradition.

For three years in the early 1990s, Andrei Gavrilov belonged to the Deutsche Grammophon stable of artists, alongside his contemporaries Krystian Zimerman and Ivo Pogorelich. Like them he had technique to burn and a searching approach to repertoire which in the hands of other pianists has often become an exhibition of facility. During that period he made nine albums, both revisiting classics of his repertoire and taking on new challenges. He also joined his Decca colleague Vladimir Ashkenazy for a Stravinsky disc which had critics purring over the dynamism and finesse of The Rite of Spring in its two-piano arrangement.

This original covers box features new essays on the pianist and his career by Peter Quantrill and Peter Czornyj, Gavrilov’s producer at Deutsche Grammophon.
