About

Acclaimed by the international music press as a "virtuoso of astonishing brilliance" and a "thoroughly poetic artist" (Dr Joachim Kaiser, Süddeutsche Zeitung), Luiza Borac has established herself as one of the most charismatic artists of her generation. Based in Germany, this Romanian pianist has won over 30 prizes and accolades, including First Prize in the Mendelssohn Competition in Berlin and the Viotti-Valsesia International Music Competition in Italy, the silver medal at the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition in Salt Lake City, the debut prize at Carnegie Hall, New York, the Prix d'Oslo, the Grieg Prize and the audience prize in the International Edvard Grieg Piano Competition in Oslo. Her pioneering project to record the piano works of George Enescu won the much-sought-after BBC Music Award in 2007 as "superbly, idiomatically played, vehemently recommended" (BBC Music Magazine), while the International Record Review described it as a benchmark for future interpretations.

Luiza Borac regularly performs in Europe and the USA. She has given concerts at such places as Walt Disney Hall in Los Angeles, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Konserthus in Stockholm, the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, the Aldeburgh Festival, the Oslo Music Festival and London's Barbican Centre, and she has worked with such artists as Vladimir Jurowski, Murray Perahia and Radu Lupu. Luiza Borac has been celebrated as "a dream of a pianist" (Rondo), "a worthy ambassador for a genius" (Music & Vision) and a pianist of "subtle but absolute mastery" (BBC Music Magazine). Gramophone has commented that "Borac's only substantial rival is Dinu Lipatti in the Third Sonata" and Hi-Fi has noted that "Luiza Borac creates an extraordinary sense of identification with the music ... a revelation". The music journal Fono Forum made this recording its "star of the month".

Live recording, October 2010, Radio Romania Bucharest
