ResMusica has a new review for Gleb Ivanov’s Delos Debut release!
“For his first record with Delos, the Russian pianist Gleb Ivanov chose the Romantic repertory, particularly that of piano transcriptions. These are demonstrations of virtuosity as much as occasions for lyricism. … His energetic and lively playing is very convincing and are entirely fitting for Chopin’s Mazurkas and pieces by Rachmaninov, in particular, whose whimsical and dynamic character he conveys very well. …He likes to bring out clarity of a melody line, with a propitious lyricism in the Liszt transcriptions.… Ivanov reveals a fine variety of technique and intentions… Having gained notice by the public in France and America…This first recording brings together the best he has to offer, lyricism, Romanticism and virtuosity.” —Agnès Simon, ResMusica (translation by Dennis Adams)
