Nina Kotova, Fabio Bidini

Cellist, Nina Kotova, praised by Gramophone magazine as a “strong and individual artist [whose] depth of feeling and technical control are never in doubt,” here partners with pianist Fabio Bidini in two landmark Russian sonatas from the 20th century, Rachmaninov’s in G minor and Prokofiev’s in C major, and in two smaller pieces by Tchaikovsky.

Reviews:

Sunday Times

“There are more extrovert accounts of Rachmaninov’s Sonata...but Kotova plays well, even if she takes a back seat to Bidini’s flamboyant dispatch of the pianist-composers’ piano parts.
She’s at her best in the two Tchaikovsky pieces.”
