Virssaladze’s playing is firm and secure. But more: there is something serene about her playing, something that suggests an earth goddess. Trained by the best teachers at the Moscow Conservatory…she brings to her playing all that is good in the Russian school. It is easy, relaxed, natural, healthy playing with unusual personality without the least hint of eccentricity. In a way she is a sort of female Gilels. An absolutely lovely disc.
