Description Edit

A pupil of Leonid Nicolaiv at the St Petersburg Conservatory, Maria Yudina (1899-1970) went on to become a legendary pianist in Russian musical circles. Yudina had a large repertoire and championed the works of many contemporary composers including those of fellow student Dmitri Shostakovich. Shostakovich was much impressed by Yudinas playing of the music of Liszt. However, of her performance of his own Sonata No 2 in E minor, Shostakovich wrote, I think Yudina plays my sonata badly. The tempos are all off and theres a free, shall we say, approach to the text. But perhaps Im wrong. I havent heard the recording in a while.
