Yes, Yevgeny Sudbin playing Medtner would be wonderful to have, though from my retail days I remember Medtner was even more box-office poisonous than Scriabin! .

Sudbin's Scrabin album was well received, so I think more Medtner from him should have a future.

Does the CD give a recording date for the Medtner?

19-21 Dec 2011.
Recording very nice. Performance like Lang Lang meets (today's) Pogorelich. Pity.

That's hard to fathom. Glitzy but with glacial tempos and fistfuls of wrong notes??

IOW Great technique (a la Lang Lang) combined with crazy changes in tempo (a la Pogorelich). All in all a complete mess, with little understanding of Russian music.
