Schumann, Liszt, and Chopin – Alexandra Dariescu (piano)

Alexandra Dariescu makes her debut recording for Champs Hill Records in a recital of works by Schumann, Chopin, and Liszt. A hugely popular communicator, she is a former YCAT artist, a Laureate of the Verbier Academy, and has been awarded the Romanian Ambassador’s prize. All three composers represented on this album contributed to the development of the romantic piano repertoire, and the works recorded form one of Alexandra Dariescu’s most popular recital programmes.



                        **** - Really Great

"Here is a talented young pianist making her CD debut who has something positive to say about the music she’s chosen... she can make the piano sing ..."

Marius Dawn - The Pianist magazine - October-November 2013


"Dariescu’s beguiling musicality, unfussy technique, and individual voice are all readily apparent despite the recording’s rather unflattering sound, possible due to overly close microphone placement. Nevertheless, the musical rewards of this recording outweigh any technical shortcomings. Meanwhile, we may confidently look forward to morefine music from thi interesting young artist."
 
Patrick Rucker - Fanfare - January/February 2013
 

                        Performance ****      Recording ****

"...overall Dariescu is enormously impressive... A very promising debut."

Tim Parry - BBC Music magazine - Christmas 2012





*****
Wow, what a debut disc! I was totally carried away with such glorious playing of fire and poetry. I don't know why Schumann's ABEGG variations are not heard more widely; a delightful piece whilst Liszt's second Ballade is one of his greatest works and this recording is up with the very best. With fabulous recorded sound to match this is a disc for all pianophiles.
