It would be unjust to reduce the Russian piano to only a certain type of sound and temperament. Russian musical school  masters offer multi-faceted aesthetic gifts. Mussorgsky is thus a brilliant colourist, Tchaikovsky is an incomparable painter of the soul, Rachmaninov throbs with almost operatic impulses,  while Prokofiev cultivates a sharp verve. Roustem Saitkoulov embraces all these dimensions with dazzling virtuosity with an intensity of a poet.
