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.

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.
