Vardan Mamikonian:
Invitation à la Danse



Vardan Mamikonian devotes this album to pieces linked to the art of dance from different eras and cultures. "Dance has always been a source of entertainment and joy, but it can also represent more sombre occasions, with pomp and grandeur. The Chaconne, for example, has become both tragic and sublime over time... Chopin's Mazurkas can be rustic and folkloric, haunting or lyrical, even dramatic. In short, dance can express diametric opposites and unite those opposites at the same time."

Genny Basso:
Neapology



When Genny Basso listened to his mother playing Neapolitan songs on the piano, a musical passion began that he has continued to cultivate along with his classical training. At some point, however, he realized that the Neapolitan tradition deserved a larger and more exclusive space in his artistic production. "It’s my personal way to thank a unique land, whose everlasting creativity is an unlimited source of inspiration."

Peter Donohoe:
Granados – Goyescas, Book 1
Albéniz – Iberia, Books 1 & 2



Peter Donohoe discovered Albéniz when working closely with Olivier Messiaen and Yvonne Loriod in the late 70s. Messiaen's admiration for Albéniz seemed as great as it was for Liszt, Franck, Wagner, Mozart, and Bach. "This inspired a determination on my part to immerse myself for a while in the works of Albéniz … although the immense technical difficulties of his largest-scale work – Iberia – persuaded me to wait for a very long time before performing any of it."
