Character and contrast
Maxim Fedotov was the personable soloist, technically secure in the virtuoso demands of this Oistrakh-dedicated score and projecting an endlessly smooth melodic line. After Scriabin's remarkable little fin-de-siecle Revene, eloquently expressed and passionately ren¬dered. Russia shook, bands with France for the Ravel orchestration of Mussorgsky's remark¬able Pictures as an Exhibition.
