Album Notes
Born in the former Soviet Union, Svetlana Belsky began piano lessons at the age of seven, and was soon performing in the major concert halls of her native Kiev. Her playing has been critically acclaimed as "passionate," "impressive," "hypnotic" and ". . . (possessing) a high degree of musical maturity and sensitivity."

After immigrating to the United States, Ms. Belsky studied with Chicago's beloved Emilio Del Rosario. She received her Bachelor of Music Summa cum Laude and Master Degrees from the Peabody Conservatory of Music, where she studied with Ann Schein, a student of the legendary Arthur Rubinstein. Later, she earned her Doctorate in Performance at the Manhattan School of Music, while working under Mme. Nina Svetlanova, an heir to the tradition of Heinrich Neuhaus.

This album is Svetlana Belsky's recording debut, a collection of piano masterworks closest to her heart. Her brilliant and thoughtful interpretations, have won praise from musicians, critics and music lovers all over the world. Although she trained mainly in the United States, Svetlana Belsky has an unmistakably Russian temperament and tonal gift, with which she combines her stylistic versatility and love for a wide variety of music.

The CD opens with Robert Schumann's Carnaval, a work remarkable for its wide range of emotions and moods, from the most most tender and poetic to unashamedly virtuostic. J. S. Bach's beautiful and profound D Major Partita follows, and the CD concludes with a selection of piano etudes written by the greatest pianist-composers, which showcase every aspect of the highest piano technique.
