The 2018 International Festival’s artist-in-residence performs an intimate recital of virtuosic and mystical piano works from Chopin, Scriabin, Debussy, Obouhow and Messiaen.

Pierre-Laurent Aimard | Piano

Obouhow | Revelation
Obouhow | Creation d’or, 2 pieces
Scriabin | Two Pieces: Desir and
Caresse dansee Op 57
Scriabin | Poeme-nocturne Op 61
Debussy | Etudes (selection)
Chopin | Nocturne in E Op 62 No 2
Messiaen | Le loriot...
Chopin | Nocturne in B flat minor Op 9 No 1
Messiaen | L’alouette lulu
Chopin | Nocturne in F sharp minor Op 48 No 2
Messiaen | L’alouette calandrelle

Sublime nocturnal evocations; dazzling nature portraits; intoxicating mystical explorations.

International Festival artist in residence Pierre-Laurent Aimard is one of today’s most pioneering musicians – as well as a global giant of the piano, renowned for his revelatory insights and his exhilarating virtuosity.

The exquisite, veiled beauty of three of Chopin’s Nocturnes contrast with the sparkling brilliance of three of Messiaen’s joyful bird portraits – of the golden oriole, woodlark and greater short-toed lark. Alongside a selection of Debussy’s scintillating Etudes, and sensual music by Scriabin, is the extraordinary mystical spirituality of Russianborn Nikolai Obouhow.
