Shostakovich: Preludes
Label: Transart Live
Released: April 12, 2011

"Articulation is everything in these “little” pieces, as the pianist’s primary means for effecting their varied personalities and moods and, importantly, their often ironic twists and irreverent turns. Kadouch is in complete command, and with his understanding of the subtle power of a perfectly placed accent, a judicious pause, or sudden dynamic shift he captures the ironic aspects of Nos. 5, 10, 12, and 15; rocks the perverse dance of No. 6; expertly highlights/balances melody against accompaniment in Nos. 8 and 15; and cleverly exploits the audacious register contrasts in No. 13." -
