3OR-18 Fascinating Rhythms!
“I have trouble articulating the difference between Nissman and other pianists. Surely other fine players note the same oddities she does. Perhaps others don't commit to them as deeply. Her vision of the sonata (Schumann No. 1) is crisper and makes sense of the whole. She seems willing to go over the cliff, hand in hand with the composer.”
A fandango – a malambo- a blues tune- they’re all fascinating rhythms!
“Nissman is a pianist of formidable talents. She combines the bravura approach of a pianist like Argerich, with the warmth and sensitivity of artists such as Schiff or Perahia. She has a bold, rich, deep-in-the-keys approach that makes the Prokofiev Sonata No. 1 – a brief, one-movement work- sound like an entire universe of sound, and she can change and adapt her approach to music depending on era and style. Everything is built around a long view of the music, knowing where she is going and knowing how each piece of the score fits in… this is one remarkable recording.”
“Nissman is available in all her glory. An impressive recital.”
