ArtistsClelia Iruzun (piano)
Rio de Janeiro-born piano virtuoso Clélia Iruzun teams up with the Coull Quartet for a varied and vital programme championing the music of her Brazilian compatriots Henrique Oswald and Marlos Nobre and the pioneering American Amy Beach.
Influenced by Brahms and Schumann, Beach’s Piano Quintet in F sharp minor (1908) is stamped through with a lyrically melancholic and pensive signature all its own. For her Romance for Violin and Piano (1893), a work of hypnotic gracefulness and aching emotions, Iruzun partners with the Coull Quartet’s first violinist, Roger Coull.
Receiving its first recording outside of Brazil, Henrique Oswald’s Piano Quintet in C major (1895) was composed in Florence. Imprinted with the European influences he absorbed there, it is lit up by his own gift for heartfelt melody.
Marlos Nobre’s Poema XXI – here in its premiere recording – carries itself with a distinctive character drawing on traditional South American dances to produce something effusive, elegant and exotic in equal measure.
Clélia Iruzun’s previous recordings for SOMM include two volumes of music by Federico Mompou (SOMMCD 0121 and 0155) and Piano Concertos by Albeniz and Mignone (SOMMCD 265) with the RPO and Jac van Steen – nominated for an International Classical Music Award in 2019 and hailed by International Piano: “Clélia comes into her vivid own, playing with a superb mastery and empathy; it is difficult to imagine… greater skill and affection”.
