KW and ESO’s Recording Krenek Piano Concerti vol. 1 with pianist Mikhail Korzhev a Sunday Times “Best of the Year” for 2016

The Sunday Times has just announced their list of the “100 Best Records of the Year,” across all genres.

We’re delighted to learn that our recording “Complete Piano Concertos of Ernst Krenek vol. 1” with pianist Mikhail Korzhev has made this year’s list as one of just 10 CDs in their “Contemporary” category.

“Moving from tonal into 12-tone territory, with arresting results. The foreshortened No. 3 is a witty, mercurial masterpiece.”

Congrats to Misha Korzhev, Kenneth Woods, conductor, producer Benjamin Michael Haas, engineer Ben Connellan, the team at Toccata, and all our wonderful ESO musicians.

You can purchase the CD via our webstore here:

Volume 2 is being released in April 2017.
