Director and violinist Alexander Janiczek leads principal players from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in this beautifully intimate recording.

The works on this disc are full of well-known tunes which demonstrate Mozart's trademark melodic beauty. Acclaimed oboist, Robin Williams, gives a dazzling performance of the composer's great masterpiece. This is the fourteenth recording in the orchestra's hugely successful partnership with Linn Records, a series that includes the award-winning Mozart Symphonies recordings with the late Sir Charles Mackerras.

Simultaneously virtuosic and soulful, indefatigably resourceful and a fount of tech savvy, Valentina Lisitsa has become the very model of a modern, major pianist. From her earliest, chess-playing days, she has prepared, performed and, in many discreet ways since, perfected the keyboard repertoire: war horses in Liszt’s solo canon, two Rachmaninov concerto cycles, challenging Ives sonatas with violinist Hilary Hahn, as well as her most recent record for Decca, a perfectly paced chase of The Piano music of living British minimalist Michael Nyman. On this latest album titled Études, Lisitsa performs works by two leading composers of the Romantic era, Chopin and Schumann.

The title Nuances is uncommunicative and has nothing to do with the ballet of that name assembled from Scriabin's music by composer Alexander Nemtin. Instead, this recital by pianist and Internet marketing phenomenon Valentina Lisitsa represents a very specific kind of program, and it's good to see her essay something like this rather than the mainstream repertory she has generally done thus far. What Lisitsa offers here is a recital that focuses on a composer's youth, and the signs it may offer of that composer's maturity.
