Michail Lifits / Szymanowski Quartet SHOSTAKOVICH 24 Preludes, Op. 34 - Piano Quintet, Op. 57
“An exhilarating affinity for colors!” These are the words of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in a rave review of the young pianist, Michail Lifits, who is rapidly gaining international attention with his captivating musicality. In highly acclaimed solo recitals in the major concert venues and as an accomplished chamber musician, his “mature sound, seemingly full of wisdom” (Süddeutsche Zeitung) has moved audiences and critics worldwide.
After two highly acclaimed recordings of Mozart and Schubert, Michail Lifits now dedicates himself to the masterworks of Dmitri Shostakovich: the humorous and enigmatic 24 Preludes, Op. 34, and one of the best-loved chamber music pieces, the Piano Quintet, Op. 57.
