Peter Tchaikovski — Piano Concerto No 1
...Konstantin Emelyanov is a gem of the 16th International Tchaikovsky Competition.
Indeed he makes a difference with his remarkably clever programme, unconventional choice of works, and harmonious interpretations, where technical stability is no obstacle to unconcealed emotions, temperament is curbed by thought, and the intuitive sense of style maintains a perfect balance between the performer’s vision and the author’s will in every piece

"Konstantin Emelyanov definitely has that lightness of touch Barber asks for, plenty of depth of tone as well ... Good sound, unusual combination of composers and an interesting pianist"

— BBC Radio 3

Le jeune lauréat du Concours Tchaïkovski est notre guide dans cette exploration fascinante qui met en lumière les multiples facettes du piano au cours du XXe siècle. Restant fidèle à l’écriture subtile de Debussy, le pianiste restitue avec finesse les sonorités limpides et fluides du premier cahier des Préludes avant de pénétrer le monde fantasque des Visions fugitives. Un Prokofiev tantôt délicat, tantôt mordant révèle le jeu cristallin de Konstantin Emelyanov qui saisit à bras-le-corps la monumentale Sonate de Barber, lecture virtuose et intelligente qui conclut ce récital remarquable.

about
Debussy, Prokoviev, Barber album on Fuga Libera
....He has mastered even the most diabolical (often hidden) pitfalls of the famous piano concerto (Rachmaninov third) with flying colors. The pianist, ......who is not obviously trimmed for too big a show effect - he simply lets what is already happening in the score, big and beautiful, happen. There is truth in the music itself
