About

“Mr Scinardo is an intelligent, sensitive musician of the first rank, and has already a large repertoire in his command, a player of refreshing candour and deeply felt musical conviction, allied to but not dominated by a comprehensive technical armoury.  His recording of the complete piano music of Musorgsky is testimony to deep musicianship and musical poetry.

Leslie HowardPianist, President of the Liszt Society and Member of Council of the Royal Philharmonic Society

Scinardo has an impressive technique. The most difficult portions of Pictures, such as the concluding run of “Gnomus” or the jumping parallel octaves of “Baba-Yaga,” he tosses off with sure-handed aplomb.
