Virtuosity of bassoon, vol.2
Alexander Bakhchiev, cembalo
Valery Riabchenko, flute
Every time I meet
him or listen to him I admire him more and more. I see his deepest
understanding of every piece of music, impeccable sense of the whole,
the finest possible observation of phrasing, the unsurpassed skill
in achieving the ultimate perfection in all the details with no
exception, the ability to expose the hidden resources of the instrument.
It is no exaggeration
to say that Valery Popov is really a great musician. This is the
only word that may adequately describe the scale of his personality,
fantastic skill, artistic flair, musical intuition.
