LISZT - BETWEEN LIGHT & DARKNESS
Between light and darkness evokes the incessant emotions that run through Liszt's work, expressing the infinite struggle that symbolized the profound duality of the composer. Even though Liszt remained famous in history, he was above all well known as a transcendent virtuoso who revolutionized the pianistic technique. It was with a vision that was simplistic but also beyond his time that enabled him to manifest the deep essence of his music. The program of this disc also embodies the many facets of the composer.
We are proud to announce the representation of the French pianist Vincent Larderet. A pianist fo the great French tradition with an impeccable lineage through Perlemuter to Ravel. Larderet's personal and deeply inspired interpretations are often compared to the piano legends such as Michelangeli, Arrau, Zimerman and Argerich.
Honoured with the revered title of “Steinway Artist”, Vincent LARDERET has attracted international recognition for the exceptional intensity of his performances and his highly acclaimed recordings. Praised as an “impressive pianist” (MusicWeb International, UK) for his “very lyrical playing” (Crescendo Magazine, Belgium) and his “multi-timbred” sound (Fanfare, USA), he “makes the piano equal to an orchestra” (Classica, France) with a wide range of “fascinating pianistic colors” (PIANO News, Germany). His very personal and deeply inspired interpretations are often compared to the piano legends such as Michelangeli, Arrau, Zimerman and Argerich. Nominated for the “International Classical Music Awards” and “Classical Revelation” by Adami winner at MIDEM in Cannes, he is considered as one of the leading French pianists of his generation. He studied in Paris with Carlos Cebro who passed on to him the tradition of Vlado Perlemuter, and worked Ravel’s music on Perlemuter’s scores annotated during his collaboration with the composer. He perfected his Art at Lübeck’s Musikhochschule (Germany) with the famous pianist Bruno- Leonardo Gelber and was a prize-winner in several international piano competitions including Maria Canals in Barcelona, A.M.A Calabria and Brest. He is also laureate of the “Orpheum Foundation for the Advancement of Young Soloists” in Switzerland.
