About the album

Since winning the Pozzoli International Piano competition the ever- popular young Scottish pianist Martin Cousin has won a just reputation as an ideal interpreter of the 'big' Russian Romantics. He has a fearless technique and a palette of extraordinarily beautiful colours that do perfect justice to the music of Rachmaninov. The Études-Tableaux have been in Martin's repertoire for some years and they were absolutely ripe for recording.

"... in distinguished company, Cousin, a thirtyish Scotsman, stands alone...the tempo relationships throughout make perfect sense. And he has not only the power to play the massive, orchestrally scaled climaxes, but also the ability to play a beautiful pianissimo, plus the uncanny control - and the musical comprehension - to bring out the ubiquitous inner lines that Rachmaninoff calls for. This is the performance of the First Sonata that I have always heard in my head, but never thought I'd actually get to hear with my ears. This guy's the Real Deal." (Fanfare)
