Melodiya presents a unique find from its sound archive – a broadcast recording of Mikhail Pletnev’s recital at the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory on 31 October 1979. This recording has never been previously released on record or CD. For almost forty years, from his triumphant victory at the VI International Tchaikovsky Competition, the name of Mikhail Pletnev has never been forgotten. Pletnev is known today as an outstanding conductor, a creator of one of the best domestic orchestras and a talented composer. Today, looking back from a distance of many years, the musician’s ‘early’ recordings appear to be even more interesting. The recent student of Yakov Flier (Pletnev was the great teacher’s last pupil, his ‘swan song’) who continued his education at the graduate school with Professor Lev Vlasenko), the 22-year-old Mikhail Pletnev demonstrates his impeccable style and professional skills. The programme includes works by J.S. Bach, Scarlatti, Beethoven and Chopin.
