Artur Pizarro & Bamberger Symphoniker,
dir. Thomas Rösner

Following the success of Artur Pizarro’s recordings of Rachmaninoff’s Complete Piano Music on Odradek, the “poet amongst pianists” returns with Poulenc’s Piano Concerto. The last of Poulenc’s concertos, this work is jaunty and playful whilst exuding an irresistible Romanticism. Poulenc’s Sinfonietta is a full-scale symphony in all but name, its self-deprecating title a reflection of the composer’s sense of humour and the work’s colourful, urbane character.

Reviews

“The captivating Poulenc piano concerto… will put a smile on any face… The Bamberger Symphony play well for Thomas Rösner.”
Norman Lebrecht / January 2020

“… the Bamberg musicians play with a sensuality that is second to none. Both recordings take Koechlin’s works to a new level of interpretation.”

WDR Radio / February 2020

“Rösner writes in the booklet: ‘Koechlin turns out to be a tireless sound magician who does not shy away from extreme instrumental sonorities and dynamics. This creates completely unfamiliar and partially organic sound mixes, the exact nature of which can only be clarified in detail with the use of the score.’ This is exactly what he convincingly realises in his interpretations.”
Pizzicato - Remy Franck / February 2020

“The Portuguese pianist Artur Pizarro is exactly the right interpreter to keep the melodious and at the same time theatrical liveliness of the music in shape, to breathe tension, passion… Thomas Rösner not only knows how to describe this music cleverly, but also to realise it in a fascinating and breathtakingly beautiful way. The performers therefore honour the title of the album.”
Onlinemerker - Dr. Ingobert Waltenberger / December 2019
