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.

Vanessa Perez (piano)

This new recording of the complete Preludes of Frederick Chopin represents the debut on Telarc Classics of the highly regarded young Venezuelan-American pianist Vanessa Perez. In recent years she has been championed as one of the best young musical talents on the scene by the likes of legendary pianist Claudio Arrau and the great conductor Zubin Mehta.

Vanessa Perez is a product of the same energised musical culture in Venezuela that produced such international stars as conductor Gustavo Dudamel and pianist Gabriela Montero. In 2009 she performed alongside star violinist Joshua Bell in Astor Piazzolla’s ‘Oblivion’ on his “At Home with Friends” album for Sony Classical. She also worked with Jan Vogler on Piazzolla’s Le Grand Tango and other pieces for the cellist’s 2008 album “Tango”, also released by Sony. In 2005 she produced a solo album for VAI that featured Chopin’s four Ballades, pieces from Albéniz’s Ibería and a work by contemporary composer Suzanne Farrin.

Perez makes her Telarc Classics debut with an all-Chopin collection that includes the 24 Preludes Op. 28, and some other popular pieces, among them the Barcarolle in F sharp major and the Fantasie in F minor.

“The surging way she plays the opening Prelude suggests pleasure in the sheer physicality of performance; the defiant dourness of the second suggests a personal vision...I suspect Perez is at heart a rationalist, not a Romantic.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2012 *****

“by the time we reach the F sharp minor Prelude (No. 13), we are listening to playing of real depth and poetry. If the 'Raindrop' Prelude will be too drawn out for some tastes, no such reservation can be applied to her scintillating execution of the treacherous B flat minor...All in all, a serious contender” Gramophone Magazine, August 2012
