CRITIC REVIEW:

“Vladimir Ashkenazy is renowned for his performances of Romantic and Russian composers. Midway through his pianistic career, Ashkenazy branched into conducting. He has particularly been praised for his recordings of orchestral works by Sibelius, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Scriabin, Richard Strauss and Stravinsky. He was the principal conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra from 1987 to 1994 and was principal conductor of the Czech Philharmonic from 1998 to 2003. He became musical director of the NHK Symphony Orchestra in 2004, and a biography of Ashkenazy, BEYOND FRONTIERS, has been published.”
