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...

Latest Piano Albums
Vladimir Ashkenazy:
J S Bach - English Suites 1-3

Vladimir Ashkenazy signed to Decca in 1963 and remains the longest-serving artist on the label. After a few releases with Russian repertoire, Decca suggested he recorded Bach’s Concerto in D minor, which was the start of his journey with a composer he reveres above all others. An astonishing 56 years and a lifetime’s experience of this timeless music separates that recording from the latest addition to Ashkenazy’s discography, Bach's English Suites Nos. 1-3.

Lilit Grigoryan:
Mompou - Música callada

Mompou's "Música callada" (Silent Music) was inspired by the writings of the Spanish mystic, Saint John of the Cross: The composer said: "This music has neither air nor light. It is a weak heartbeat. It’s not meant to reach any further than a few millimetres in space, but it is meant to penetrate the greatest depths of our soul and the most secret regions of our spirit”.

Arturo Nieto-Dorantes:
Albéniz - Iberia

Arturo Nieto-Dorantes has recorded and performed a lot of Mexican and Latin American music. But he is also one of few pianists to perform Albéniz's Iberia in its entirety - a cycle of twelve pieces of which Debussy once said: "Never has music achieved such diversified, such colourful impressions: one's eyes close, as though dazzled by beholding such a wealth of imagery."

Eloïse Bella Kohn:
Bach - Art of Fugue

Composed towards the end of his life, this cycle of fugues can be regarded as Bach's artistic legacy. During his last months, Bach had gone blind, which is probably why the last fugue was left unfinished. On this album, Thierry Escaich has composed a new completion of the work.
