Anatoly Lyadov - Complete Piano Music, Volumes Three & Four (including few World premiere recordings).

 

"There still is a full range of emotions - and a balance of brilliance and tenderness. Solovieva's excellent technical abilities are called on almost as often as her ability to spin a beautiful legato melody. [...] Ms Solovieva said [Lyadov's] music deserves to be much better known; I cannot agree more, and I like her performance"  (James Harrington, American Record Guide)

Grand Piano GP716

Boris Tchaikovsky  -  Sonata for Two Pianos (with Dmitry Korostelyov), Sonata for Violin and Piano (with Marina Dichenko).

Boris Tchaikovsky  -  Piano Quintet (with The Vanbrugh Quartet).

 

"Piano Quintet is in many ways a remarkable work [...]. The performances are exceptional." 

(Tim Ashley, The Guardian)

 

"The Vanburgh Quartet and pianist Olga Solovieva put real intellectual muscle behind the physical weight of their playing. [...] Piano Quintet soon called me back for a second listen." 

(Philip Clark, Gramophone)

Northern Flowers, NF/PMA 99106/107

Anatoly Lyadov - Complete Piano Music, Volumes One & Two.

 

"Solovieva gives an absolutely gorgeous performance... There are so many tuneful works that all exude what I have come to think of as Russian musical characteristics that I could close my eyes and point at a random track and it would be a perfect example. So much of this is really good that one wonders why it is almost unknown. Fortunately, given performances like this, we can enjoyably explore Liadov’s output and get to know it much better."  (James Harrington, American Record Guide)

Toccata Classics, TOCC0046

Naxos, 8.55780

Sergey Taneyev - Violin Sonata (with Ivan Peshkov, violin) and pieces for piano (including premiere recordings)

 

"And grateful we should be to pianist Olga Solovieva and Naxos for outing them, for they are gem-like beauties, which, in melodic and harmonic vocabulary, are heavily indebted to Schumann and Tchaikovsky....Ivan Peshkov is wonderful in the two violin works, and Olga Solovieva, as both soloist and accompanist, is one of the best advocates Taneyev has. Urgently recommended." (Jerry Dubins, Fanfare)

 

"The supreme clarity of the sound quality adds to the elegance of the performance... Pianist Olga Solovieva brings a velvet, delicate touch to the virtuoso piano part." (Catherine Nelson, The Strad)

 

"Olga Solovieva is a fine pianist" (Joseph Magil, American Record Guide)

"Solovieva plays with steely-fingered brilliance: she's in complete control of what she's doing..." (International Record Review)

"Olga Solovieva plays this music with relaxed aplomb and perfect sympathy..." (American Record Guide)

Toccata Classics, TOCC0076

Herman Galynin: piano music (Sonata Triad, Suite, Four Preludes, etc).

 

"As for Olga Solovieva, her choice as soloist was inspired. She brings clarity and a wide variety in her touch to these virtuosic performances, while remaining properly responsive to both the poetic and caustic sides of Galynin's musical personality..." (Barry Brenesal, Fanfare)

Naxos, 8557727

Boris Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto (with Russian Academy of Music Chamber Orchestra, conductor Timur Mynbaev)

 

Performances are excellent from all concerned... At Naxos’s price, every music-lover should give this CD a try.”  (Phillip Scott, Fanfare)
