Released to commemorate the forthcoming anniversary of Mendelssohn in 2009, this 8 CD set features the piano works. The works on these discs exude flowing elegance and pianistic brilliance. Songs Without Words display flowing lyricism combined with appealing melody and the character pieces, fantasias, capriccios, preludes, studies and other works demand a good deal of dexterity.
As a soloist and chamber musician, Dana Protopopescu has captivated audiences worldwide. Previous recordings won her the highest acclaim in press reviews by the Penguin Guide and Diapason France. Among other awards, she has received the Music Critic Award in Bucharest.
