· Alexandra Dariescu presents the first album in a “Trilogy of Preludes” containing the complete works of this genre by Chopin and Dutilleux.
 
· Frederic Chopin composed his 24 preludes, op. 28, one in each of the 12 major and 12 minor keys, between 1835 and 1839, commissioned by the pianist, publisher, impresario and piano manufacturer Camille Pleyel.
 
· Henri Dutilleux’s 3 Preludes were not designed as a set but composed at intervals between 1973 and 1994. Each Prelude is dedicated to a great Pianist: Artur Rubinstein (D’ombre et de silence), Claude Helffer (Sur um meme accord) and Eugene Istomin (Le jeu des contraries).
 
Alexandra finds the form of the Prelude as relevant today as in Chopin’s time and was drawn to Dutilleux’s use of polyphony and harmony in his fascinating contribution to an established genre.
 
· Alexandra Dariescu is one of the most talented pianists of her generation and was featured as BBC Music Magazine’s Rising Star in June 2011. She has won the Guildhall Wigmore Prize and the Romanian Ambassador‘s prize for her outstanding contribution to promoting Romania’s image in the UK and is currently a YCAT artist.
 
· Highlights in Alexandra’s 2012/2013 season include her debut at the Royal Albert Hall (which will be followed by a launch event for this new disc), and performances at The Barbican, Bridgewater Hall and Royal Concert Hall.

"...There’s much superb playing to enjoy: she is particularly good at creating atmosphere through her sound, which is cushioned, refined and beautifully balanced..."
