“Hayroudinoff goes much further than mere accuracy. If he cannot quite equal the composer’s breathtaking nonchalance in the three he recorded, he comes close… His rich tone and beefy attack serve him well… This is powerful Rachmaninov playing that transcends the artificial constraints of the recording studio.”
- Gramophone

“There’s little doubt that Hayroudinoff’s warmly recorded interpretations are not only brilliantly characterised and absolutely masterly in terms of technique, but also sufficiently varied in colour and timbre to enable him to extract the maximum degree of impact throughout each piece – an extra dimension that makes his performances sound even more vibrant and imaginative that those of Howard Shelley and Vladimir Ovchinnikov, two of the undoubted front-runners in these works.”
- BBC Music Magazine

“Right from the March at the beginning of the F minor Étude which opens the Op. 33 set, his forthright playing is never less than satisfying. Chandos has recorded Hayroudinoff relatively closely. He stands up well to this scrutiny and makes the most of the opportunities it affords, with some appealingly crisp playing.”
- International Record Review

“This is one of the more successful traversals I’ve heard of the Études-tableaux in recent years… Hayroudinoff impresses me throughout this recital as a thoughtful pianist.”
- Fanfare

Rachmaninov’s engaging and energy-filled sets of Études-tableaux are the focus of this release from Russian pianist Rustem Hayroudinoff. A true inheritor of the Russian virtuoso tradition, Hayroudinoff’s performance of the Études dazzles with its dexterity and musicianship.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
