A well balanced and engaging recital of the Russian born pianist, Misha Fomin [….] His interpretation of music composed or arranged by Liszt is outstanding with a subtlety of touch and phrasing, a refinement of musical expression together with a natural display of virtuosity. From no.5 onwards the recital is of a superior quality, emitting superbly the distinctive styles of the European romantic and early-modern piano repertoire. Misha Fomin does full justice to the dreamy atmosphere of 'Les cloches de Genève', as well as to Debussy's subtle impression of a mediterranean summer evening in 'Les sons et les parfums tournent dans l'air du soir', and to the more solid and dramatic work by Scriabin and Rachmaninov.
