Catalogue No: ONYX4036

We are proud to mark the debut release on ONYX from the legendary virtuoso and poet of the keyboard Nikolai Demidenko. Recognised as one of the great Chopin players of our time. This is his first recording of the Preludes.
Bryce Morrison in Gramophone magazine praised his last Chopin recital disc: "Demidenko's razor-sharp articulacy and immaculate dexterity are complemented by the finest musical grace and individuality" (Editor’s Choice, 2007)
Demidenko won the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1978, recorded a highly acclaimed series of discs in the 80s and 90s (mainly on Hyperion) including a Gramophone award-winning disc of Medtner Concertos. As a young man he was widely acclaimed as a firebrand virtuoso but this was never the whole story and like a good wine his playing has matured gloriously. Now with new management, Nikolai plans to resume a more high-profile international concert career.
