Julien Libeer, artist-in-residence at Flagey, offers us the first piano recital of the season. The concert will feature a selection from his most recent CDs, including an ethereal version of Maurice Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales (Lignes claires, 2016) and the works of Bach and Bartok from his latest CD, released in January 2020 to rave reviews. The concert ends with Chopin’s Piano Sonata No. 2, famous above all for its particularly tragic third movement, the Funeral March.
His original and compelling musical choices have made Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson one of the leading classical musicians of the moment. Gramophone Artist of the Year and Limelight International Artist of the Year, he returns in 2020 with a new album dedicated to two French composers considered revolutionary in their respective times: Jean-Philippe Rameau and Claude Debussy.
Philippe Herreweghe and the Argentine pianist Nelson Goerner go in search of the lost ideal: the refreshing simplicity and folk character in which Brahms' complex identity as a human being and composer speaks directly and infinitely to us about love, loss and desire.
