October 29, 2013 Natasha’s latest recording, featuring classics of Russian piano literature, is now available for purchase on Amazon and iTunes. The CD, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Fabien Gabel, pairs Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Natasha’s performance on the disc has been hailed as an “electric, powerhouse performance” (The Herald). This follows her successful solo release, which featured a new work by Gabriel Kahane, commissioned specifically for her.
