Tianxu An - Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov & Prokofiev - Gramophone
[An] exemplary and often moving recital. He has an innate affinity with the three composers presented here. He opens with Tchaikovsky at his most brooding and melancholic in the early F major Nocturne and October ('Chant d'automne') from The Seasons. After Tchaikovsky, Tianxu An moves up a gear or two for the motoric rhythms of Prokofiev's four early Études, Op 2 (1909), comparative rarities and alone worth the price of the disc, dispatched with insouciant élan.
