About

2018 commemorated the 30th year of the Ruhr Piano Festival along with the 100th anniversary of Claude Debussyís death. This 4-CD set celebrates France as the great cultural nation it is with two composers who left an indelible mark of the late 19th century: Debussy and Saint-SaŽns. The album boasts the remarkable discoveries of young pianists and also of singers, who perform widely unknown but beautiful songs by the two composers.

ď30 Years of Ruhr Piano Festival ĎVive la France!í: that is the motto which stood as an emblem for the Ruhr Piano Festival in 2018, its Anniversary Year. Commemorating the end of the First World War in 1918 and paying homage to Debussy, who likewise passed away a century ago, we decided to place the Festivalís annual focus on German-French friendship, an important political and cultural axis that has played a significant role in the history of music. I am therefore particularly pleased that this yearís boxed set of 4 CDs highlights France as a great cultural nation by featuring the highly variegated, exhilarating repertoire of two composers who left an indelible mark on the late 19th century: Claude Debussy and Camille Saint-SaŽns.Ē - Franz Xaver Ohnesorg

ďEver since the Festival was founded in 1988, this cultural flagship of the Ruhr Circle of Initiatives has evolved to become the most well-known address for professional pianists on a worldwide scale. Celebrated masters of their craft and young rising stars all congregate each year in the Rhine-Ruhr region to present the fascinating, variegated world of piano music to an enthusiastic audience. One of the Festivalís remarkable traits is that it lends particular prominence to young artists who are at the beginning prominence to young artists who are at the beginning of their careers.Ē - Ulrich Weber, Patron of the Piano Festival 2018
