ArtistsArthur Ancelle (piano)
Arthur Ancelle is a prize winner of many international competitions in France, Russia, Bulgaria, Italy, Spain and Australia, the pianist has played at famous venues such as Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Salle Cortot and Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Philharmonic Halls of St Petersburg and Moscow. The pianist has several special awards for the performance of contemporary composer’s works. He is particularly known as a champion of contemporary French music.
According to Ancelle, the composers featured on the album are not an accidental choice. It may seem, at first glance, that they have nothing in common. However, there is a great deal of cultural links between them.
Chopin’s Four Ballades on the album are individual interpretations of the performer who seeks to demonstrate his vision of Chopin’s music. Dutilleux’s pieces – Sonata for piano and Three Preludes – capture the inimitable style of the contemporary French composer. Bright colours, purity and freshness of the musical language, energy, impulse, love and poetry are the key features of the works played by Arthur Ancelle.
Jean-Martial Golaz, a renowned sound engineer who has collaborated with famous labels took part in the making of the album.
