- Philippe Bianconi (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
First prize winner at the 1981 Cleveland International Piano Competition and silver medalist at the 1985 Van Cliburn Competition, French pianist Philippe Bianconi studied at the Nice conservatoire with Simone Delbert-Février and later with Gaby Casadesus in Paris. Since his Carnegie Hall debut in 1987, Bianconi has performed in major concert halls and festivals around the world. The interpretation of French music has always been of great importance in his repertoire, both in the concert hall and the recording studio. This new disc of Debussy Préludes for La Dolce Volta displays Bianconi's profound attention to detail and irresistible poetic imagination.

This attention to detail extends to the painstaking visual presentation. The design of the booklet is quite handsome, accompanied cover to cover by intense pictures taken by photographer Axel Arno, compositions that capture dreamlike flashes of colors and lights. Liner notes are supplied in Japanese, English, French, and German. Truly an amazing recording.
Recording information: Église Notre-Dame du Bon Secours, Paris, France (02/2012).
