Rachmaninov #3: Challenging, Beautiful and played with Passion
Natasha Paremski has a fascinating piano career. Her piano studies began at the age of 4 with Nina Malikova at Moscow's Andreyev School of Music and they concluded in New York with Pavlina Dokovska at Mannes College of Music. After 2007 and the conclusion of her academic life, her professional musical engagements allowed her to travel and perform at innumerable concert halls and venues with a great ordeal of word class musicians.
Nevertheless, this recording of Rachmaninoff's 3rd Piano concerto is by far my favorite work that Natasha has done. The three movements are executed with passion, tact and musicianship which becomes an example on how music should be interpreted. On the other side, Andrew Litton and the Bergen Philharmonic played at a level that gave Natasha a solid support to deliver complete concerto at her best. We must remember that Rachmaninoff's 3rd piano concerto has the reputation of being one of the most challenging works in the piano repertoire due to its musical complexity, and the technical virtuosity it demands.
"Comparisons with Argerich should not be given lightly, but Paremski is so clearly of the same temperament and technique that it is unavoidable here."by American Record Guide
