The 2015 Jaén International Piano Competition was won by a young Canadian pianist of Ukrainian descent, Anastasia Rizikov, who was also awarded the prizes for best performances of Spanish and Contemporary Music. This is reflected in her interpretations of Albéniz’s radiant and virtuoso Triana and the work commissioned for the 57th edition of the competition, Soñando María Magdalena, which transforms the traditional Jaén melody La carrasquilla into a tender and powerful personal journey. The programme is completed by the disquieting beauty of Beethoven’s ‘Tempest’ Sonata and the breathtaking energy of Grieg’s only work in the same genre.
