- Yuri Favorin (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
The Harmonies poétiques et religieuses by Franz Liszt is one of the most beautiful and accomplished cycle for piano. Even if some of the pieces - Bénédiction de Dieu dans la solitude and Funérailles - are quite famous, the rest of the cycle is not very often performed, and surely not often recorded! The complete cycle is a masterpiece, and Yury Favorin, brilliant winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition 2010 is incredibly talented to perform this repertoire, a very good choice for his CD debut!
Yury Favorin was born in Moscow and even at infancy he exhibited an extraordinary ability for music. He was six he knew Beethoven's 5th Symphony, Tchaikovsky's 1st and 4th Symphonies distinguished of conductors and performers correctly.
In 2004 Yury entered the Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatory to study the piano under Professor Mikhail Voskresensky. He also studied the composition with Karen Khachaturyan and chamber ensemble with Alexander Rudin. Yury graduated from the Conservatory summa cum laude in 2009.
Yury gives recitals in many countries - Germany, Austria, Norway, Hungary, France, Italy, Sweden, Polen, Japan, Netherlands, and Belgium among them - achieving outstanding success everywhere. He also gives charity concerts for sick children (Moscow), war children (Vienna), and the disabled (Vienna).
Yury has worked with Pierre Boulez, Marin Alsop, Pool Goodwin, Tadeusz Zmijewski, Arkady Berin, Kazuhiro Koizumi, and other leading conductors.Notes & Reviews:
