Alexandra Dariescu (piano)

Alexandra Dariescu presents the first disc in a 'Trilogy of Preludes' containing the complete works of this genre by Chopin and Dutilleux.

Frederic Chopin composed his 24 preludes, op.28, one in each of the 12 major and 12 minor keys, between 1835 and 1839, commissioned by the pianist, publisher, impresario and piano manufacturer Camille Pleyel.

Henri Dutilleux’s 3 Preludes were not designed as a set but composed at intervals between 1973 and 1994. Each Prelude is dedicated to a great Pianist: Artur Rubinstein (D’ombre et de silence), Claude Helffer (Sur um meme accord) and Eugene Istomin (Le jeu des contraries).

Alexandra finds the form of the Prelude as relevant today as in Chopin's time and was drawn to Dutilleux's use of polyphony and harmony in his fascinating contribution to an established genre.

Alexandra Dariescu is one of the most talented pianists of her generation and was featured as BBC Music Magazine’s Rising Star in June 2011. She has won the Guildhall Wigmore Prize and the Romanian Ambassador‘s prize for her outstanding contribution to promoting Romania’s image in the UK, and is currently a YCAT artist.

“There's much superb playing to enjoy: she is particularly good at creating atmosphere through her sound, which is cushioned, refined and beautifully balanced...the richness of Chopin's fleeting visions possibly needs to be complemented at the appropriate moments by something darker” BBC Music Magazine, September 2013 ***

“Dariescu is a deeply impressive exponent of both composers’ work, bringing to every piece the lucidity and sensitivity it commands” Sunday Times, 9th June 2013

Christina Bjørkøe (b.1970) began learning the piano at the age of five from her mother. In 1978 she became a pupil of Therese Koppel, who taught her until 1990, then she studied with Seymour Lipkin at the Juilliard School in New York and with Anne Øland at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, where she made her debut as a soloist in 1997. She has been awarded several prestigious prizes and grants, among them Victor Borges Musikpris in 1994, Victor Schiølers Legat in 1999, and Merete og Helge Finsens Hæderpris for 1999.

Christina Bjørkøe is associate professor at the Carl Nielsen Academy of Music Odense. She has made various acclaimed recordings of piano music from her homeland for CPO and Dacapo, including the works of Knudåge Riisager, Carl Nielsen, Herman D Koppel and Niels Viggo Bentzon.

Now she turns to music as well-loved and familiar as it is elusive, the Preludes of Chopin. They were conceived and composed amid the rain and emotional turmoil (far different from its modern reputation as a sun-seeker’s paradise) of Majorca, whence he had decamped with his mistress George Sand and her two children in search of a climate that would ameliorate his health, debilitated as he was by the onset of tuberculosis.

It was not to be. However, the Preludes form a deeply disciplined exercise in poetic sensibility, covering all the major and minor keys like Bach before him in The Well-Tempered Clavier. Each prelude is a poem, a complete, self-contained musical statement.

Wolfram Schmitt-Leonardy (piano)

German pianist Wolfram Schmitt-Leonardy is one of the leading pianists of his generation. His concert activities and CD recordings mark him as an extremely intelligent musician with his heart in the right place, his immense technical powers almost being taken for granted. His CDs of Brahms, Schumann and Rachmaninov have won him 5 star reviews all over the world: “astonishing and exquisite listening” (Fono Forum), “Electrifying passion and clarity” (Piano News), “dazzling brilliance and interpretative sophistication”(American Record Guide), “Coup de Coeur”(Piano Magazine). His Chopin interpretations on this new recording breathe an air of improvisation, vision and imagination. Listening to the Preludes evokes a synaesthetic experience: the sounds, views and smells of Mallorca (where they were composed) merge into a feeling of beauty, bliss and melancholy…

Beatrice Rana (piano)

In June 2011, Beatrice Rana, then 18, became the youngest-ever winner of a first prize at the Montreal International Music Competition. She also won each of that year’s special prizes. She is, said Le Devoir, “not only a pianist but, above all, an artist.” Her ATMA solo CD is dedicated to Chopin’s Preludes Op. 28 and Scriabin’s Sonata No. 2 Op.19 — thrilling repertoire for an outstanding young pianist.

Beatrice Rana made her debut last season with several orchestras, including the Orchestra Internazionale d’Italia, the Südwestdeutsche Orchester, and the Aarhus Symfonieorkester in Denmark. She also performed as a guest artist with the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec, the symphony orchestras of Edmonton, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg, the Kuala Lumpur Philharmonic Orchestra, the Violons du Roy, and the Orchestre Métropolitain with Yannick Nézet-Seguin.

She began studying piano when she was 4, and became a student of Benedetto Lupo at the Conservatorio Nino Rota, from which she graduated at the precocious age of 16. She now studies in Hanover with Arie Vardi.
