I have never seen a better booklet for a single disc

 I cannot imagine a better, more complete introduction to a relatively unknown composer.

Each piece charms

Steve Schwartz Classical CD Review September 2011

 

 Autant de vignettes musicales au charme certain, marquées par un goût pour les contes de fées et le fantastique.

Wonderfully evocative music

Raymond S. Tuttle International Record Review July 2011

 

Revealed in all his pianistic glory

Nikolai Tcherepnin (1873-1945), patriach of a still-thriving musical dynasty, student of Rimsky-Korsakov and teacher of Prokofiev, is revealed in all his pianistic glory in these fascinating first recordings, from the lushly romantic early "Three Pieces", with their tinges of Chopin and Rachmaninov, to a charmingly original set of tone poems based on children's alphabet sketches, which display just why his friends teasingly called him "Debussy Ravelovich". David Witten is entirely at home in the vivid imagery of "The Fisherman and the Fish" – all watery splashes and flashing sunlight. Enchanting stuff.
