Notes & Reviews:

Up to now, Belgian piano prodigy Julien Libeer has - quite surprisingly - been able to steer clear of the international spotlight, in spite of being widely recognized as one of the world's most astonishing talents. In 2010, at the tender age of 22, he was nominated "Young Musician of the Year" by the Belgian music press; in 2008 he had received the prestigious Juventus Award, previously awarded to later icons like Piotr Anderszewski and Emmanuel Pahud. Since then, he has performed on stages including the Palau de la Musica Catalana (Barcelona), Barbican Hall (London), and the Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), often in series typically reserved for more "weathered" virtuosi. On his debut album Lignes Claires, Libeer lays bare the luminous lines in the music of his favorite composers, exploring the reticent sensibility in Ravel's Tombeau de Couperin and Valses nobles et sentimentales, and the haunting hypnotism and delicate understatement in the Nocturne and Sonatine by Romanian piano virtuoso Dinu Lipatti (1917 - 1950), whose output as a composer has been unjustly eclipsed by his aura as a performing genius.
