Dukachev offers some lovely, lyrical, energetic piano playing, with rich and passionate Rachmaninoff, and Schumann full of poetic legato. But the live recording presents coughs, wrong notes, misplaced microphones and (I think) a plane overhead. And the back cover gives us the musical misprint of the millennium: ‘Faschingsswank’.
