VERA GORNOSTAEVA | Vol VIII | Schumann/Tchaikovsky
When we, here at LP Classics, embarked on our journey to uncover Vera Gornostaeva's live performances, we didn't quite realize just how far this project would take us. We also couldn't have predicted just how difficult and how rewarding it would be to continue uncovering gem after gem in her playing. This latest volume took us on a trip back to our hometown, Moscow - and more specifically, to the Moscow Conservatory, where Ms. Gornostaeva taught for over 5 decades.

VERA GORNOSTAEVA | Vol VII |Beethoven, Piano Sonatas | Memorial Release
On January 19th, 2015 the world lost a remarkable woman, pianist and pedagogue. A true legend - Vera Gornostaeva.
...
Since releasing the first Volume in the "Discovering a Legend" series in November of 2011, Ms. Gornostaeva's unearthed live performances have garnered audience and critic accolades and she became an overnight sensation in Chicago, thanks to WFMT.
Brian Reinhart from MusicWeb International said this of one of the previous releases and we feel it really sums up why LP Classics felt a responsibility toward Vera and listeners worldwide to take on this project, as challenging as it is at times.
...
Vera Gornostaeva is an extraordinary pianist, maybe one of the greats. She builds her performances from fire and tempered steel, but is capable of poetic softness. She embraces huge contrasts, steering with complete control from an explosive fortissimo to a hypnotic sung melody... For once, the title "Discovering a Legend" is not a hyperbole. This is how legends begin."
And indeed, on January 19th, 2015 as the founders of LP Classics received an overwhelming amount of messages from listeners that have been embracing these never heard before recordings and paying their respects and tributes to Vera Gornostaeva, it became clear that what started as a personal project of her former student, Vassily Primakov has grown into an important and poignant company mission of LP Classics - because despite Ms. Gornostaeva's passing, her art will now forever live on and that is, after all … exactly how legends begin!

VERA GORNOSTAEVA | VOL. VI | CHOPIN 4 Ballades & 13 Mazurkas
LP Classics's "Discovering a Legend" series continues to explore the live performances of this brilliant Russian pianist Vera Gornostaeva. This November, LP Classics celebrates it's 3 Year Anniversary! In November 2011, the "Discovering a Legend" series was born with the 1st Volume of Ms. Gornostaeva's sensational live performances of Chopin's works. We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the footprint and legacy that we have created in these past three years, then by returning to the composer that started the "love affair" between LP Classics and Vera Gornostaeva.
To help us celebrate, Chicago's Premier Classical Radio Station, WFMT will be featuring this album, along with Volumes IV & V, in their upcoming Pledge Drive from 11.05.2014 - 11.21.2014. Please tune in to hear tracks from these albums, as well as an interview with Ms. Gornostaeva's student and LP Classics Co-President, Vassily Primakov on November 12th and a lot of other special features and surprises.

DISCOVERING A LEGEND | VERA GORNOSTAEVA | Vol. I | CHOPIN RECITAL
Vera Gornostaeva, is a celebrated Russian performer considered A "True Treasure" of Russian culture and has traveled extensively throughout Soviet Union with up to 100 concerts a year. Her reviewers raved about her "Gornostaeva is a natural! She has an envious control of the instrument. "Recitals, given by Gornostaeva, are never flashy. Her playing is neither mannered nor false. She communicates the true essence of music that she delivers in the most profound way.
...
Unfortunately, because Vera Gornostaeva never made any compromises - politically or musically, she became a persona non grata in the eyes of the Soviet Regime and despite the fact that invitations from the west kept pouring in, the permission to leave was never granted. As a result, for over twenty years Gornostaeva's name was among those "blacklisted" and was officially deemed politically unreliable. By the time the iron curtain fell, Vera Gornostaeva, already in her 60s, decided to abandon her performing career and dedicate herself entirely to teaching and would perform only occasionally.
