On Being a Pianist in Kenya - Against All Odds
It is hard enough to train as a classical pianist, even in a Western country with good access to instruments, sheet music and advanced tuition. If you happen to live in Kenya, where nothing of the above is easily available, the many obstacles make it almost impossible. Yet, there are people with an absolute determination to learn. Piano Street has talked to pianist Cordelia Williams, whose new documentary film depicts a new generation on track to break the "glass ceiling" of classical music in Kenya. Read more...

Much attention and mention is given Sir Andras Schiff's latest remarkable recording of both Brahms’ piano concertos with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Schiff's choice of instrument is a Blüthner grand piano built in Leipzig around 1859, the year in which the first D minor concerto was premiered. Schiff has changed foot in his views on period instruments and the recording can be seen as an ambitious attempt to scrutinize and fully bring out the true characteristics of Brahms' works.

Latest Piano Albums
Igor Levit:

This is a triple CD containing two gigantic 20th century cycles - Shostakovich's 24 Preludes and Fugues, and Ronald Stevenson's Passacaglia on DSCH. For Igor Levit, Shostakovich's work "is a ritual of self-exploration and self-discovery," while the Passacaglia "is a veritable compendium of life, a kind of music that tells us of our responsibility towards the world as a whole."

Claire Huangci:
Bach - Toccatas

Claire Huangci first established herself as an expressive interpreter of Chopin, but has since proved her versatility in a broad repertoire - her already impressive discography ranges from Scarlatti to Prokofiev. The new album starts with Busoni's transcription of Bach's famous Organ Toccata in D minor, and continues with Bach's original, rarely performed Seven Toccatas.

Imogen Cooper:
Le temps perdu

This very personal album has Imogen Cooper returning to her study years. "It all came from a strong desire on my part to re-explore pieces – good pieces – learned when I was a teenager in Paris, or as a twenty-year-old with Alfred Brendel in Vienna. None of these pieces have I performed in my adult years on the concert platform. What has happened to them, cocooned inside me and unaddressed for half a century?"

Paul Lewis:

Paul Lewis's cycles of core piano works by Beethoven and Schubert have received a lot of critical and public acclaim.
