Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Described as a "poet amongst pianists", Portuguese artist Artur Pizarro presents a new recording of the complete solo piano works of Sergei Rachmaninoff. A former winner of the Leeds Piano Competition, Pizarro offers his listeners a lifetime of love for, and experience with, this music which speaks, as he says, "of the endless variety of the human condition". Tracing Rachmaninoff's development as a composer from the early Nocturnes and his encounters with Tchaikovsky as a teenage student of Nikolai Zverev in the 1880s, to the so-called 'Corelli Variations' of the 1930s, this landmark release shines a new light on every aspect of this remarkable oeuvre. From the famed thunder claps of the C# minor Prelude, via the monumental passion of the two sonatas to the tender lyricism of many of the lesser-known miniatures, Pizarro imbues every page of this music with the fire and feeling for melodic contour for which his playing has become so admired.

Instrumental Choice
Pizarro's playing is absolutely exquisite, not only revelling in the expressive beauty of Rachmaninov's invention, but also managing to draw out lots of interesting inner melodic voices in the more densely scored passages.
