“Taratushkin fills every single tone with life. Everything fits together in an organic and natural way … Brahms wrote his Paganini variations as exercise pieces for certain technical challenges, scales, thirds, sixths, octaves. In all this challenges Brahms went to the limits of performers capabilities. It seams that for Taratushkin this limits simply do not exist. The pieces are not exercises, but music, performed with energy and power … Standing ovation for the young artist and the outstanding performance. One should definitely note down the name Mark Taratushkin”
