Vassily Primakov among pianists in recitals Jan. 28-29

Vassily Primakov is one of the most-recorded pianists around these days. The Russian (born in 1979 in Moscow) made more than a dozen CDs for the well-regarded Bridge label, until he recently started his own label, LP Classics, with his duo partner Natalia Lavrova. Primakov is playing a recital at 4 p.m. Sunday at the USF Concert Hall in Tampa. His program includes Chopin (24 Preludes) and Liszt's revolutionary Sonata in B Minor, which Wagner once described as "beautiful beyond compare; great, sweet, deep and noble." $8-$15. (813) 974-2323;

Two other pianists give recitals this weekend:

Junko Ueno Garrett performs Bach's Goldberg Variations at 8 p.m. Saturday at Carrollwood Cultural Center, Tampa. $14-$20. (813) 269-1310;

• On Sunday, Joseph Schwartz plays Liszt's incomparable B Minor Sonata plus works of Brahms and Chopin at 3 p.m. at Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center. $19, $24. (727) 942-5605;
