Vanessa Benelli Mosell is a rising star on the international music scene, continuously praised for her virtuosity, technical brilliance and the sensitivity of her musical insight, which have been shaped significantly in mentorships with Karlheinz Stockhausen and Yuri Bashmet.

This new album includes music by Alexander Scriabin as well as by her mentor, Stockhausen, thus putting together two composers both considered visionaries in their respective different historical periods.

Vanessa performs Scriabin’s 24 Preludes op.11, which she considers to be one of the most accessible works of the composer and ideal start to discover this composer. She also plays the Etude op.8 no.12, one of Scriabin’s most frequently performed and popular works.

Another tribute to Karlheinz Stockhausen, the composer she studied with, comes with the recording of Examen / Klavierstück XII: this recording continues with the purpose of introducing and presenting the piano music of one of the most crucial personalities of the 20th century.

Stockahusen’s Klavierstück XII is extremely fascinating and picturesque, since the pianist also has to whistle, make all sorts of noise and browse between the strings inside the piano.
