Reviews

‘Mikhail Faerman won first prize in the 1975 Queen Elisabeth of Belgium Contest, hence he appears on DG’s Concours series, although he plays well enough to appear anytime on a full-priced line. His Prokofiev is very dramatic and very spiky, and he brings out all the whimsy in this wonderful piece. The Brahms is beautifully articulated, with delicate gradations of touch.’ Fanfare
