 Yue He Soloist


Legendary pianist Alfred Cortot’s distinguished reputation as an educator is demonstrated in these magnificent arrangements of chamber music for solo piano. They cover every aspect of technique and expression, from Bach’s demanding Toccata and Fugue in D minor to Fauré’s delectable Dolly Suite and the grand scale of Franck’s Violin Sonata. Award-winning pianist He Yue is a young and rising star of the Chinese musical firmament.
 

 "... this is a solid contribution to our understanding of a worthy piano figure of the early 20th century..."

Ernst Hoffmann - Piano News magazine (Germany) - November/December 2013


"... fascinating and rewarding. He Yue has been well and faithfully recorded."

Colin Anderson - International Piano magazine - September/October 2013


                      Music ***½ (Good/VeryGood)               Sound **** (Very Good)

Franck Siebert - Fono Forum magazine - September 2013


                         Editor’s Choice

"This is, in all the senses of the word, a brilliant release... This release is proof that the piano can easily stand on its own. But you need a pianist who can imitate the melodic line, the harmonies and, not least, play with a singing tone. Chinese pianist He Yue is just the right man for the job. He is tremendously talented and his piano tone is round and full, his fortissimos never hard. He is helped by a clear and transparent recorded sound... He Yue is at the very top level. What a fantastic discovery!"  ***** (Essential)

Marius Dawn - Pianist magazine - August/September 2013


"The great Franco-Swiss pianist and conductor Alfred Cortot was renowned for his poetic insight into the Romantic period, particularly the piano works of Chopin and Schumann. But Cortot was also a fine arranger, and on this new album we get to enjoy some of his most famous interpretations of classical favourites. The soloist on this exhilarating recording is He Yue. a Chinese pianist who’s rapidly becoming one of his country’s most in-demand young musicians..."
