In September 2017, during the Brussels Chopin Days, the annual concert season entirely dedicated to the music of the Polish composer, Vestard Shimkus gave a recital that unveiled his irrefutable and oh so personal sense of construction, combined with a narrative power as rare as it is spellbinding, thus confirming his place at the apex among the most striking pianists of the new generation. © Artalinna

Still little known by music lovers, Japanese pianist Hiroaki Takenouchi has a boundless admiration for the works of Joseph Haydn, whose terrific inventiveness he has been analyzing for many years. For this first album on the Artalinna label, he proposes four sonatas that were composed in the early 1770s. They feature a dense, spirited, serene, and joyful Haydn that is consistently uncluttered. © Artalinna/Qobuz

After a remarkable Chopin programme in 2010 on the Artalinna label, François Dumont embarks on a journey at the heart of Johann Sebastian Bach’s piano works. The four dance suites brought together here form an imaginary cycle of variations on the letters of the composer’s name, B.A.C.H, including a plurality of characters, atmospheres and expressions. The French pianist offers a dynamic vision of the Cantor’s work. Demonstrating a deep understanding of its polyphony, his magnificent and colourful playing unleashes the most thrilling dancing energy.

Aline Piboule offers us a journey to the country of light. For her first solo album, she brings together three fundamental French piano works, Fauré’s Ballade and Theme and Variations and Dutilleux’s Sonata, which has become one of her favourite pieces. The programme is made up of a succession of insistent variations on the theme of light, contrasting aesthetics which very often oscillate between shadows, sound and silences. Aline Piboule’s playing has a fairly typical French charm, fluctuating between robustness and tender sensuality. © Artalinna

After a first album for Artalinna dedicated to Rachmaninoff, released in 2014, Vestard Shimkus now invites us on a journey to the heart of the work of Scriabin, one of his favourite composers, alternating “miniatures” (Feuillets d’album, Preludes) and large forms (Poème-Nocturne, Sonatas). Shimkus’ interpretations, devoid of violence, emphasize the formal clarity and harmonic modernity of the Russian composer, at times revealing unprecedented colours (Sonata No. 4). An album that showcases a singular and expressive universe. © Artalinna

Cuban pianist Gabriel Urgell Reyes proposes a three-part journey to the worlds of four great composers of 20th century. Alongside Ginastera are notably featured Fariñas of Cuba (Vol. 1) and Mompou of Spain (Vol. 2). The repetitive aesthetics of Reich then concludes this exploration of Ginastera’s spellbinding chamber music (Vol. 3). It is a little known heritage with unrivaled density and richness, and an inspired, ardently free vision. © Artalinna/Qobuz

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.

Here, the young Chinese pianist Ran Jia invites us on an absolutely beautiful journey, both for her technical prowess and her expression. An alloy of lyricism and fiery spirit, every interstice demonstrates her technical skill and poetic imagination, and more broadly her affinity with one of her favourite composers: Schubert. © Artalinna / Qobuz

Through this third album for Artalinna, François Dumont invites us to take a second promenade at the heart of J.S. Bach’s keyboard works. Some of the Cantor of Leipzig’s famous works, either as originally written or subsequently transcribed by the Romantics (Prelude and Fugue in A minor, Chaconne for solo violin), offer a complete panorama of the composer’s style from his very early youth (Capriccio) to his full musical maturity (Italian Concerto). Here, as in his fi rst Bach volume, François Dumont offers a revitalized vision of polyphony and an astonishing diversity of expressions.

Cuban pianist Gabriel Urgell Reyes continues his spellbinding journey at the heart of Iberian and Latin-American music he began in the first volume of his "Meeting Ginastera” retrospective. By juxtaposing here Ginastera’s least well-known work – the cycle of 12 American Preludes – with the complete performance of Federico Mompou’s 12 Songs and Dances, Gabriel Urgell Reyes braves an hour of reverie and languid ecstasy: an emotional journey of rare intensity. © Artalinna

The third collaboration between the pianist Philippe Guilhon-Herbert and Artalinna, this programme plunges us into the tragic and exacerbated universe of two major figures of European musical Romanticism, Chopin and Liszt – the two virtuoso pianists and composers who, in the tradition of Beethoven, radically transformed piano writing. From Liszt’s Saint François de Paule to Chopin’s Ballade No. 4, including the Etudes and other sound epics, welcome to the country of the unknown and the metamorphosis. © Artalinna/Qobuz

For several years now, Hiroaki Takenouchi had been keen to champion the music of a major Romantic composer, William Sterndale Bennett – an English virtuoso pianist, born in 1816, and considered one of the most captivating virtuosos in his time because of his flamboyance and mastery of the keyboard. Here, Takenouchi chooses one of what are indisputably Sterndale Bennett’s most accomplished scores, the Piano Sonata in F minor Op. 13, dedicated to Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy: the work unveils a romantic ballad tone, which is both exciting and genuinely exhilarating, like the great scores of Mendelssohn or Schumann. To complete his programme Takenouchi offers one of the latter’s masterpieces for piano, Symphonic Etudes (1834) and dedicated… to William Sterndale Bennett. Indeed, Hiroaki Takenouchi’s new album released on the Artalinna label offers us interplay of reciprocal dedications to these three great names of European Romanticism – Mendelssohn, Schumann and Sterndale Bennett. His first volume of a double anthology dedicated to Haydn had been honoured by an ffff from the French magazine French magazine Télérama (highest award).

Latvian pianist Vestard Shimkus takes us on a journey to the core of Rachmaninoff’s music both at its most brilliant and secretive. From the famous Piano Sonata No. 2 – in its original version – to the more uncommon Variations of a Theme of Chopin, to three of the most extraordinary Preludes of Opus 32, Shimkus reveals a clear and powerful style with a strong lyrical side. A truly astounding, mind-blowing album and a musician with exceptional eloquence. © Artalinna/Qobuz

On this new recording for Artalinna, pianist Romain Descharmes dives into sonic realms of rare complexity. Alternating between Fauré and Scriabin, through an emblematic rendition of the Nocturnes by the former including the tragic and violent No. 13, as well as electrifying music by Scriabin, such as Vers la flamme or Sonata No. 9, the French musician invites us on a spellbinding journey of remarkable expressive power. As the album title suggests, all aboard to ecstasy! © Artalinna/Qobuz

Benedek Horváth’s first album. This young Hungarian-born pianist’s anthology offers us a journey between two centuries, two aesthetics, at the heart of his native country’s music. He forges original links between Franz Liszt, a major figure of European musical Romanticism in the nineteenth century, and Béla Bartók, one of the high priests of musical Modernism at the beginning of the twentieth century. Benedek Horváth reveals a dynamic, refined and subtly timbred style of playing.
