Lyapunov included all his Piano concertos, Rhapsody on Ukrainian Themes, for piano & orchestra, Op. 28. Steven J Haller (American Record Guide, March 2011) stated in its review of the album that “Moscow-born Shorena Tsintsabadze seems born to play this music; she embraces it like Van Cliburn did the Tchaikovsky, warmly lyrical and impassioned and blessed with a wide-ranging span of the keyboard from full bass register to glittering, yet never clattery top end.”. Also, The Guardian reported “The performances are terrific, with monumental playing from Shorena Tsintsabadze …” “Moscow-born pianist Shorena Tsintsabadze catches the fire and the poetry of the music, meets its pyrotechnical demands with relative ease and imparts a wonderful sense of imagination to her interpretations.” wrote Robert Cummings (Classical Net, January 2011). Ian Lac (MusicWeb International) mentioned that “…Tsintsabadze brings to bear a light and delicate poetic touch with unbridled passion reserved for the Concerto’s climactic passages.”
