- Leonora Armellini (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
For her debut album, young Italian pianist Leonora Armellini treads refreshingly new paths with her take on one of Robert Schumann's most successful and popular works, the Album for the Young, op. 68.In the collection written in 1848, Schumann wanted to compose pieces of good quality primarily aimed to foster children's enjoyment in playing the piano. He immediately conceptualized kind of a house book appealing to all senses in which the atmosphere of the time in music, literature and painting was incorporated. In addition to that, almost all pieces of the album bear direct references to the family life of the Schumann's: He makes use of events, characteristics and actions of his children in a musical fashion. The Album for the Young affords Leonora Armellini a lot of room to bring across this very joy of playing the piano and to present her multi-faceted and delicate playing.Notes & Reviews:
