In recent years, Vassily Primakov has been hailed as a pianist of world

International Piano Competition, Primakov was praised by Donald Rosenberg
of the Cleveland Plain Dealer: “How many pianists can make a line sing as

Vassily Primakov has released numerous recordings for Bridge Records that
include works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn,
Brahms, Chopin, Dvorak, Debussy, Tchaikovsky, Scriabin, Rachmaninoff,
Philip Glass, Arlene Sierra and Poul Ruders.
In 2011, Mr. Primakov, along with Natalia Lavrova established a new and
vibrant record company, L.P. Classics, Inc. Their first release was Anton
Arensky: Four Suites for Two Pianos. Most recently, they released
Primakov’s Live in Concert Album that includes works by Medtner, Schumann,
Brahms’ Handel Variations and Ravel’s La Valse.http://www.lpclassics.net
