Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

His previous solo album (Janácek, Martinu, Kabelác; Supraphon SU 3945-2) earned the young pianist Ivo Kahánek, one of the most remarkable talents of this generation, numerous enthusiastic responses on the part of the critics ("A great recital! 10/10 [Classics Today]; "He is a very special talent" [Fanfare]). With this new album, he has embraced the very core of the Romantic piano repertoire and in so doing pays tribute to Fryderyk Chopin. In addition to the paramount Sonata in B minor, Chopin's most extensive work for solo piano, Kahánek performs four Scherzi, composed throughout Chopin's creative life. Kahánek's infectious musicality brings out the compositions' poeticism, romatic upswing and virtuosity to the full - one often has the feeling that this is "merely" improvisation, a music originating from the sheer magic of the moment. The pianst's credo is seeking his own path, yet consistently within the intentions of the composer's score (according to Jan Ekier's new edition). Recorded at the Martinu Hall, Academy of Music, Prague, May and June 2010.
