Tansman, Alexandre

Intermezzi (24)
Piano Sonata no.5


Hanna Holeksa (piano)


Polish pianist Hanna Holeksa expands her extensive discography with over an hour long solo album with piano works by Aleksander Tansman.

This music is undoubtedly worth making the greatest efforts, and in spite of the fact that the number of performances and recordings of works by the composer born in 1897 in Łódź has significantly increased in the last decade, there is still a need to popularise Tansman's output in his homeland. For her solo album, the artist chose the cycle of 24 Intermezzi, which brilliantly explores all sonic possibilities of the piano, enclosing emotional universes in miniature forms. The work was composed during the difficult period of the beginning of World War II. The CD is completed by the Piano Sonata no.5 written in 1955, provided with the dedication 'à la mémoire de Béla Bartók'. Tansman celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Hungarian composer's death with this piece. This album stands out as a must-have when discovering Tansman's oeuvre.
