Info for Liszt, Pärt

Noble lamentations (Andante Lagrimoso): here is Liszt in all his diversity. Outstanding even in this company is Bénédiction de Dieu dans la solitude, one of the composer's finest pieces, a fresco of lofty spirituality. The pianist Vanessa Wagner has chosen to interpolate three pieces by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt in these excerpts from the Harmonies poétiques et religieuses. They are characterised by a decanted musical style, deeply religious in its inspiration, rooted in Gregorian chant and early polyphony. This coupling is a world premiere and it is surprising that no one has yet thought of it, so close are the styles of the two composers. The atmosphere of the recording will be deeply mystical, seeking to suspend the musical gesture.

Vanessa Wagner
A highly individual musician, Vanessa Wagner is characterised by her sensitive and thoughtful playing, the richness of her tone colour, and her artistic choices, which prompt her to traverse the di erent repertories, from that of the fortepiano (which she plays on period instruments) to the music of our time, notably that of Pascal Dusapin and François Meïmoun, both of whom have dedicated several pieces to her. After obtaining a Premier Prix at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris in Dominique Merlet’s class and a postgraduate diploma in the class of Jean-François Heisser, she entered the International Piano Academy Lake Como, where she received the guidance of such great masters as Leon Fleisher, Dmitri Bashkirov, Murray Perahia, Fou Ts’ong and Alexis Weissenberg.

Since being named ‘Solo Instrumental Discovery of the Year’ at the Victoires de la Musique in 1999, Vanessa Wagner has appeared with the leading international orchestras and conductors.

She is also a sought-after chamber music partner, and often shares the concert platform with her musician friends, notably Augustin Dumay, with whom she has a privileged partnership, the pianists Marie Vermeulin, Cédric Tiberghien and Wilhem Latchoumia, and Murcof, a renowned musician on the electro scene.

Vanessa Wagner is artistic director of the Festival de Chambord and has been appointed Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
