REVIEW:

Pianist Kenny Broberg's debut recording features three notorious Russian finger-crunchers, by Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, and Medtner. There is a lot to like here: the crisp, properly edgy tone in the Medtner sonata, the clean execution of the Scriabin, but really, the best news is Broberg’s careful structuring of the melodic material, even amidst the clatter of percussive, rapid runs. This is a major pianist to watch in the music of the Russian school, which hasn’t had a big champion in the U.S. lately.
