Kapustin: Piano Music

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
Jazz has had a profound influence on classical music, and not just in America. Debussy, Ravel, Milhaud, Hindemith, Weill, Stravinsky, and many other eminent European masters incorporated elements of jazz into some of their works. Jazz plays an even more prominent role in the music of Nikolai Kapustin.

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
Jazz has had a profound influence on classical music, and not just in America. Debussy, Ravel, Milhaud, Hindemith, Weill, Stravinsky, and many other eminent European masters incorporated elements of jazz into some of their works. Jazz plays an even more prominent role in the music of Nikolai Kapustin. Born in 1937 and classically trained at the venerable Moscow Conservatory, Kapustin first established his reputation as a jazz pianist, leading his own quintet and playing in other Russian jazz ensembles. As a composer, Kapustin has forged a refreshing style all his own, fitting improvisatory-sounding riffs and runs, syncopated rhythms, and bluesy harmonies within standard classical forms -- all imbued with the virtuoso spirit of romantic Russian pianism handed down from Scriabin and Rachmaninov. On this beautifully recorded Hyperion disc, British pianist Steven Osborne breezes through the first two sonatas as well as 13 of the 24 Chopinesque Preludes in Jazz Style, offering a delightful introduction to Kapustin's unique art. You might wonder, "Is it jazz, or is it classical?" But as with all "crossover" music, it doesn't really matter as long as it's good. And it is.
