Opus Classic, april 2014 "Russian Album"
by Aart van der Wal (In short)
n this CD recording Olga Malkina has put together a programme showcasing the work of four composers. The programme is rich in contrast, yet admirably balanced. It shows great ambition both in terms of interpretation and virtuosity.
The single-movement sonata by Prokofiev (heard in this instance in the composerís 1917 revised version) is performed solidly, while she gives free rein to her imagination in Rachmaninovís three Etudes-Tableaux.
The build-up of tension in prelude op. 32, no. 10 is admirable.
I have heard the two Shchedrin miniatures played in a different way, but by no means better. Delightful!
Olga Malkina: a talented musician, and one to watch."

impeccable technique and great musical expressiveness ..."
