Notes & Reviews:

From 2013 to 2016 the 32 piano sonatas of Ludwig van Beethoven will be performed at the "Internationales Pianistenfestival" in Böblingen near Stuttgart (Germany) in a cyclic order. Usually, this mammoth task is handled by just one artist. The sound-aesthetic, technical and virtuosic spectrum is so large that it is particularly tempting to get eight different pianists involved in this work cycle. The first three CDs with the Beethoven Sonatas series of the concerts in 2013 have already been published. Here the "Volume 5" - performed by Elena Kolesnitschenko and Eugène Mursky. Elena Kolesnitschenko is known by the documentary film: &dbquo;prodigie-childs of Russia“ (2000) and his continuation &dbquo;The competitors – prodigie-childs of Russia II“ (2010), in which she accompanies life and problems of an adolescent child prodigy. She has mastered the step of the child prodigy to a well-known pianist long ago and receives enthusiastic aplause today from the audience in concert halls in the whole world. Hatto Beyerle, the founder of the Alban-Berg-Quartet, helped her to become that artist's personality, which admires the audience today on the stage. In 1994 Eugène Mursky won the first prize at the World Piano Competition London combined with the prize for the best Chopin interpretation. After this great success Mursky was invited to perform recitals at important venues in Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Japan and the USA, as a soloist with orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra, Orchéstre National de Lille, the Irish National Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Sweden and the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. He won first prizes on several international competitions: in the “Concóurs Grieg” 2000 in Oslo, the “Bremen international piano competition” 2001 and the 2002 3rd “Denza” Piano competition in Neaples. 1998 to 2002 Eugene Mursky studied in Salzburg and received the “Mozarteum” award. Since 2003 Eugene Mursky lives in Berlin and performs in musical centers of Germany, Europe, the USA and far East as a soloist, as well as a chamber musician.
