Goldstone has simply proven himself to be one cool cat. Diving into the well of unsung Russian classical composers yet again, he’s produced another winner as he digs into the ornate works of Lyapunov, a composer who you’ve probably never heard of if you are reading this on this side of Vladivostok. The composer must have pissed off someone in the Kremlin to have his works so criminally ignored unless Goldstone adds so much to the interpretation that he’s playing things that were never heard. If you love classical piano with a flourish, this is right up your alley. With never a dull moment, you’ll fall in love with something you should have heard a long time ago. Well done.
