TRA NGUYEN - The Poets of the Piano - recital and CD launch
Joachim Raff: Fantaisie op. 142
Selected pieces from 12 Romances en forme d'Etudes op.8
Fryderyk Chopin: Four Ballades
With her recent two CD albums of piano music of Joachim Raff having been chosen as 'Album of the Week' by The Independent, pianist Tra Nguyen continues to explore the under-presented works of this Swiss composer with further world premiere recordings on GRAND PIANO (Naxos). This recital marks the release of the 4th Volume of the highly anticipated series of Raff's beautiful writings, but rarely heard, for the piano.
"... top-class performance by Nguyen, her technical prowess augmented once again by an intuitive sense of expression and phrasing that brings this magical music to life." MusicWeb International
"The gentles Eglogues benefit from Nguyen’s subtle touch, but there is surprising virtuosity here, too; the Impromptu-Valse absolutely sparkles under her fingers, while the Fantaisie-Polonaise is an effective marriage of Liszt and Raff. A stimulating disc." © International Piano
