Forse og fremmest er det en god blandning af vaerker - polske Chopin, ungarske Liszt og russiske Scriabin - dernaest er det en pianist, der kan noget mere end blot lire ballader af.

Oleg Marshev far virkelig tangenterne til at danse pв sin nye udgivelse fra det danske pladeselskab Danacord. Hans 3 valse af Chopin er ikke blot velvalgt,men i hoj grad ogsб velspillet. Selvfolgelig er Chopin en yderst prekaer komponist, og hans vaerker er mesterstykker for piano...

Pianist. OM in recital

The Pianist OLEG MARSHEV IN RECITAL DACOCD 677 In Oleg Marshev's new disc the revelation comes with the Scriabin pieces, which are quite simply ravishing. Oleg Marshev has recorded all of Tchaikovsky's works for piano and orchestra, and is one of the few pianists who has inhis discography more works for piano and orchestra than solo recitals. Critics around the world praise his releases, however, this new recording, made straight after a successful New Zealand concert tour, may be his best. Never has the Liszt Funerailles sounded so devastatingly tragic, the Spanish Rhapsody so super virtuosic and the Chopin so stylish and brilliant. The real revelation comes with the last Scriabin pieces which are quite simply ravishing in their beauty and where one really...

International Record Review PABST Piano Concerto in E fiat RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Piano Concerto in C sharp minor SCRIABIN Piano Concerto in F sharp minor Oleg Marshev (piano); South Jutland SO/Vladimir Ziva Danacord DACOCD 660 73:52 mins. Producer Lennart Dehn. Engineer Stephan Flock Listening to these captivating performances, with all concerned playing as though they believed in every note, reminded me of Vox's 1970s heyday in the UK on Decca Turnabout when 99p would buy you Michel Ponti playing Balakirev, Lyapunov or Tchaikovsky's Second with a scorching abandon and imperativeness that in many ways has never been surpassed on disc.

BBC Music Magazine online, Pabst/Skriabin concertos

Classical-Music.com The official website of BBC Music Magazine Pabst; Rimsky-Korsakov; Scriabin This is Oleg Marshev’s finest disc since his stylish accounts of the two Shostakovich concertos. He includes a genuine rarity which has not even surfaced on Hyperion’s Romantic Concertos series, the rather ordinary specimen by Königsberg-born, Russocentric Pavel Pabst (1854-97). Calum MacDonald’s liner notes suggest that ‘the date of the work, its tonality and its thematic structure’ may have been tailored to the 1883 coronation of Tsar Alexander the Third. Be that as it may, it’s short on truly distinctive grandeur, but it does give Marshev a chance to display both muscular virtuosity and light transcendentalism, executed as well as anyone could wish. The other concertos on the disc are touched...
