Extractions: "....pyrotechnics came from Russian pianist Yakov Kasman, who illuminated his performance of Beethovens "Emperor" Concerto with electrifying energy and sparkling tonal colors and followed the piece with a brittle, crackling march from "Love for Three Oranges," by Prokofiev. Kasmans style glimmers with the best of Russian schooling: the unabashed caressing of a line, the tempo liberties that dance around a solid beat, the virile technique and voluptuous sound....[He] communicated a trance-like focus and assertive poetic lyricism that played with - and played off conductor Carl St. Clairs stricter adherence to classical proportions." Los Angeles Times (1998) "Russian-born Yakov Kasman... did not simply pound at the keys as so many pianists do with this difficult concerto with many moods. He found the yearning heart of it, which is so much a part of the unabashedly emotional Tchaikovsky...it was in the elegant longing of the first and second movements that his artistry left the audience breathless."

Extractions: Lyn Bronson Well, she didn't wear a red, white and blue cape, and she didn't spin around three times, but she did just about everything else. Kate Tamarkin, the second guest conductor this season being considered for the post of conductor and music director of the Monterey Symphony, charmed us with her personality and wowed us with the superb results she achieved with our orchestra. Just as significant was the fact that she earned the respect and support of the orchestra members themselves. Sometimes we see string players politely tapping their bows against their instruments as a form of applause, but this is the first time I can remember hearing our orchestra members wildly stamping their feet at the end of the concert. The occasion at Sunset Center in Carmel on Monday, November 16, was the second concert of the Monterey Symphony's 1998-99 concert season. And this is vitally important season, since seven guest conductors have been selected to audition with the orchestra, and one will become the orchestra's future music director and conductor.

So amazingly good that you'd think you have the Talich Quartet right in your room LIVE and just playing for you!! The performance of the Quartet is impressive, conveying the musical messages from Mozart in a warm, charming and invigorating way. I just can't stop listening these pieces!! I don't get tired of them!! I have never get bored with them. If I were to live with only three CD's in my collection of Classical Music, this set would be one of them. No doubt about it!! If you like Chamber Music, you like Mozart and if you consider yourself to be an audiophile or demand the best sound possible for what you pay for, and if you care for only top notch performers executing to the highest standards of quality, discipline and sensitive mastery, then this CD is for you The members of the Talich Quartet, joined here by violist Karel Rehak, are master Mozarteans who play with tremendous zest and unaffected affection. With a lyrical performance of Mozart's beloved Clarinet Quintet thrown in (featuring clarinetist Bohuslav Zahardnik), this award-winning, budget-priced-three-disc set is an extraordinary value.
Extractions: By Sterling Adams For The Savannah Morning News Savannah Onstage's World Class Concert Series continued Saturday afternoon at First African Baptist Church with a spectacular performance by pianist Yakov Kasman. Winner of silver medals in two world class piano competitions the 1997 Van Cliburn and the 1995 International Prokofiev the 30-year-old Russian turned in superlative renditions of works by Medtner, Mussorgsky, Ravel and Prokofiev. It was evident from the beginning that Kasman was something of a pianistic phenomenon. His exquisitely etched, clearly delineated realizations of three ''Fairy Tales'' by Nicolai Medtner were breathtaking excursions. His fleet-fingered traversal of these relatively unfamiliar works was even more astounding, coming at the beginning of the program hardly pieces one warms up on! Next, Kasman offered one of the more monumental piano masterpieces from the 19th-century Russian national school: Mussorgsky's ''Pictures at an Exhibition.'' His conception of these musical evocations of Victor Hartmann's paintings was as exciting and exemplary in approach as one may hear anywhere. He used his considerable technical prowess with dazzling effect in such sections as ''The Marketplace at Limoges'' and in the final measures of ''The Great Gate at Kiev,'' achieving sonorities that almost transcended the limits of the instrument. It was here that the first of two standing ovations occurred.

Yakov Kasman came into the competition with credentials few could beat - a winner at the 1992 Arthur Rubinstein Competition, he had also won the Second Prize in the 1995 International Prokofiev Competition in St. Petersburg. Trained in Russia, he possesses a technique other performers can only dream about. It is not surprising that prior to the results he was the outright favourite for the top prize. For this disc, he plays two very interesting and rare pieces. The first is the 9-minute Allegro in B minor by Schumann, which appears to bear some inspiration from
