For his first recording on the Alpha label, Sergei Kasprov, a young Russian artist trained at the Moscow Conservatory, defies the laws of time. He has in fact chosen to create a dialogue between great Baroque geniuses and Russian Romantics: Rameau, Lully, Loeillet, Bach and Scarlatti revised by Tausig, Godowsky and Rachmaninov.

In the tradition of Marcelle Meyer, Glenn Gould or, more recently, Alexandre Tharaud, Sergei Kasprov pulls off the tour de force of freeing himself from ‘Baroque’ interpretative codes and, at the same time, from those of the 19th century, to better get back to the essential.

The excellent recording quality attests ideally to the discourse, respectful of the original counterpoint as well as unfailing digital dexterity necessitated by appropriate ornamentation and the amazing sound palette required by late Romanticism, all on a Steinway contemporary with Rachmaninov. A new talent, an Alpha discovery!
