KURYOKHIN, SERGEY: Some combinations of fingers and passion
The incomparable Sergey, recorded in London, hauls his piano through thickets of sound with deceptive ease. Protean, hopping from one genre to another, scarily free of gloss and bluster, this is direct, sometimes irresponsible music that plays endlessly with form. A long cat and mouse performance with Brubeck's 'Blue Rondo a la Turque' forms the centrepiece; as cavalier with time as the early Dollar Brand.
