Encore! – Recorded live at the Sydney International Competition of Australia 2016
The finest young pianists from around the world are chosen to compete in the Sydney International Piano Competition of Australia, and this double album showcases some of the most dazzling solo performances from the Sydney International Piano Competition 2016.
Outstanding not only for their technical brilliance, but also for the depth of emotion in their interpretations and their mastery of a breathtaking range of musical styles, these are exceptional artists, displaying the very best of their talent.
18 competitors in all are represented, playing music from the Baroque (Rameau and Scarlatti) to the 21st century (Lindberg), taking in along the way not only music by Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninoff, but also Sibelius, Dutilleux and Zaderatsky as well as sizzling arrangements of Liszt by Horowitz and Tchaikovsky by Feinberg.
Piers Lane, himself a competitor at the very first Sydney International Piano Competition and now its Artistic Director, contributes the introductory notes.
The 2016 competition was not only broadcast in its entirety by ABC Classic FM but also live streamed, so already has an international audience. A further album of Australian piano music heard at the competition is due for release in early 2017.
