Rock in the Compositional Surf

The piano? Family affair. »It wasn't a choice, because it's always been part of my life,« Beatrice Rana says. »We grew up together. The piano is a life companion, a refuge, the way to say something about myself. A companion of adventures that I studied with and that now takes me around the world.« For the pianist, born in 1993 in Lecce, there were no alternatives in her choice of profession. Success has proven Rana right, praising her »sovereign, innate musicality« (The Los Angeles Times) and attesting to an »orphic seductiveness, a transcendent lightness of touch« (The Times) with which she makes the solo part in Schumann's Piano Concerto shine. 

With Richard Strauss' »Ein Heldenleben« Yannick Nézet-Séguin turns to a rock in the compositional surf. Strauss himself appears as a hero in this large-scale tone poem and provoked generations of music listeners with this study of aggressive egoism. It is one of the most brilliant and virtuosic orchestral scores in the history of music, offering the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra the opportunity to exhaust all the possibilities of a large orchestral sound body.
