Khatia Buniatishvili

Khatia Buniatishvili’s first Schubert recording includes Schubert’s great last Piano Sonata (D 960), the 4 popular Impromptus and Ständchen ( Liszt). Khatia will be performing the repertoire on a worldwide tour, including London’s Barbican on 1st April. Khatia is one of the today’s leading classical pianists, having performed at the most prestigious venues and events including New York’s Carnegie Hall, the BBC Proms at the London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall and Salzburg Festival. Gramophone noted of the critically acclaimed pianist’s previous recordings “Buniatishvili produces the most ravishing, velvet-toned pianissimo” (‘Motherland’) and “Right from the concerto’s opening moments, there’s tremendous power to Buniatishvili’s playing, and her massive technique overcomes every hurdle with ease.” (‘Rachmaninoff’).

Gramophone Magazine

"It’s a reading of extremes that will either beguile or frustrate… There’s no doubting Buniatishvili’s considerable pianistic powers, nor her abundant imagination, but overall this seems a disc that promotes her rather than Schubert’s sublime music."
