If you are going to play Baroque music on the modern piano then Scherbakov clearly believes in using its potential to the full. His are full-blooded readings that take these stunning miniatures by the scruff of the neck and don’t let go for a second. The opposite of the fastidious, aloof Michelangeli, Scherbakov sounds as though he is reeling from the excitement of a fresh discovery and compels us to listen along with him.
