The cosmopolitan Franz Liszt and the unpretentious Franz Schubert couldn't have been more unlike in terms of lives that they led. But with their musical oeuvre, they maintain a symbiotic relationship to this day: Schubert's works were always an inspiring, "magnificent treasure" to Liszt, which he was very fond of sharing with the world. Therefore Liszt was an advocate of Schubert's reception wherever possible. On concert tours, he also always had Schubert's music with him, including many lieder as piano transcriptions. Viacheslav Apostel-Pankratowsky traces the synergies of this artistic alliance on his debut CD with GENUIN: with exceptional reserve, energetic musical language, and warm nuance.

"Apostel-Pankratowsky plays the [...] Impromptus [...] with considerable skill and empathy for the music. "
Rezension von David R. Dunsmore, Juli 2020

Piano News
"Die ganze Artikulation zielt auf das "Erzählerische", auf den balladenhaften Ton ab. Dabei gelingt es dem Pianisten (...), auf übertriebene Theatralik zu verzichten. Innere Melodien hervorzulocken gelingt ihm grandios."
