Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents an album with recordings of Frédéric Chopin's and Henri Dutilleux's works performed by the French pianist Arthur Ancelle. Arthur Ancelle is a prize winner of many international competitions in France, Russia, Bulgaria, Italy, Spain and Australia, he has played at famous venues such as Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Salle Cortot and Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Philharmonic Halls of St. Petersburg and Moscow. The pianist has several special awards for the performance of contemporary composer's works. He is particularly known as a propagandist of contemporary French music. Chopin's Four Ballades on the album are individual interpretations of the performer who seeks to demonstrate his vision of Chopin's music. Dutilleux's pieces - Sonata for piano and Three Preludes - capture the inimitable style of the contemporary French composer. Bright colours, purity and freshness of the musical language, energy, impulse, love and poetry are the key features of the works played by Arthur Ancelle.
