Feriel Kaddour (piano)


Anatoly Alexandrov (1888-1982) is a composer to be rediscovered. He has forged a very particular style, somewhere between Scriabin, Medtner, Rachmaninov and at times Debussy. His language firmly fits into the Russia of the first half of the 20th century, both on a harmonic and a pianistic level. The recording reveals its contrasting aspects: intimist and personal pages meet popular melodies, some of which are typically Russian, while others evoke a more impressionist feel.

Fériel Kaddour devoted this recording to the short forms of the composer: Visions, Preludes, Passages. They summon sensations and colours, and their depth of field explores the nooks and jarring subtleties of the harmony.

Fériel Kaddour pursues a double career as a pianist and as a musicologist.
