Notes & Reviews:

Alexandra Dariescu presents the first disc in a Trilogy of Preludes containing the complete works of Chopin and Dutilleux. Dariescu was named BBC Music Magazine's Rising Star in June 2011, and she's won the Guildhall Wigmore Prize and the Romanian Ambassador's prize for her outstanding contribution to promoting Romania's image in the UK. She is currently a YCAT artist.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
The Dutilleux Preludes are new to me and another world of style and harmony. Dariescu's performances are quite convincing, and my appreciation for this music grew over repeated hearings. By programming these three works between the big Chopin set and his final two Preludes, she creates a unity one might not expect. I eagerly await the next installment in her trilogy.
