Notes & Reviews:

In a testament to her musical maturity and the high quality of her playing, she is accompanied on her debut Warner Classics release by Italy's finest orchestra, the Orchestra Dell' accademia Nazionale Di Santa Cecilia, under their Music Director Sir Antonio Pappano. This album is a tour de force, demonstrating the very best of Italian musicianship today.

At just 22, Beatrice Rana has already made a big splash on the international scene. Winning the 1st Prize and all special prizes at the Montreal International Competition in 2011 at the age of 18, was followed in June 2013 with winning the Silver Medal and the Audience Award at the prestigious Van Cliburn competition. She is already a seasoned performer, have made her orchestral debuts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Santa-Cecilia Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, RAI Symphony Torino, Dresdner Philharmonie, Queensland Symphony Orchestra, and Filharmonica della Scala.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2016
[The Prokofiev] presents formidable technical challenges, all of which are surmounted almost with nonchalance, the pianist's focus resolutely serving the score, not the mechanisms involved in performing it. She has a particularly rewarding sense of rhythm, high sprung, light and incisive and entirely secure... [there is] no doubt that this is a young pianist to be watched.
