Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions Diapason d'or - Exceptional sound
Among the many young talents which are currently developing on the musical scene, a select few are particularly spellbinding. One of these is Florian Noack whose generosity and solar brilliance shine through from the very first listening. His vivaciousness and curiosity are thrilling and infectious. His "twenty-five" fingers gallop marvellously across the keyboard. And most important of all, his sincerity and humility command respect.  A traveller to the heart of national folk musics, he shares in their unique flavours, by turns exquisite and powerful; he sometimes offers his own unique arrangements... Pianist Florian Noack invites us here on a stunning musical adventure: his first recording for La Dolce Volta, after several albums for Ars Produktion and Artalinna. Florian Noack's album is structured around dance: Brahms, Grieg, Schubert, Rachmaninov, Szymanowski, Komitas, Janáček, Nín, Martucci, Grainger, for a virtuous, poetical and intimate sequence. Florian Noack deploys all the range of his talent to bring us the quintessence of these pieces, which in other hands would seem banal. This is an utterly charming album, which will not leave anyone indifferent: that's for sure! © La Dolce Volta

Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 5 de Diapason
Here, an inspired interpreter of Russian music, from Rachmaninov to Scriabin, including Medtner and Lyapunov, Florian Noack invites us on a journey to the hearts of two great polyphonists of the late Romantic era. Both the poetic science of Nikolai Medtner and Johannes Brahms, and the density of their writing, originate in a search for polyphonics with a thousand ramifications, testifying in this sense to their shared love for the great masters of the past, such as Bach and Beethoven.

Hi-Res Booklet
For his second album for the French label La Dolce Volta, following the magnificent “Album d'un voyageur” where he led us on a magnificent journey through Europe, travelling from Spain to Poland and exploring everything from the popular rhythms of Paul Ladmirault (Variations sur des airs de biniou) to Szymanowski’s Danses, here Florian Noack returns to Russian music - something which he has loved since his adolescence. Prokofiev has been haunting him since that age, when he watched the television broadcasts of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 2003 and saw Prokofiev’s Second Concerto being performed by Severin von Eckardstein (who would later go on to win First Prize), marking a historic date in the history of the competition. With this new recording, Florian Noack composes a programme that alternates between relatively rare works (Tales of an old grandmother, Quatre Études, Op. 2) and more famous scores, in this case two absolute masterpieces of Prokofiev’s piano work. Composed between 1915 and 1917, the Visions fugitives form a catalogue of twenty short piano pieces inspired by the symbolist poet Constantin Balmont. The Belgian pianist’s interpretation is more tender and dreamy rather than sarcastic (Raekallio, Ondine 1989), worried (Gourari, ECM 2014, with her melancholic poignancy) or fierce (Mustonen, Decca). He concludes his recital with Piano Sonata No. 6, Op. 82, the first of the “war sonatas”, giving a performance with moderate but nevertheless firm contrasts. © Pierre- Yves Lascar/Qobuz
