CHOPIN: Études, Op. 25
STRAVINSKY (arr. Agosti): The Firebird (complete)
At only 24 years old, Gramophone’s 2017 “Young Artist of the Year” Beatrice Rana is making waves on the international classical music scene, arousing admiration and interest from conductors, critics and audiences around the world.
Ms. Rana came to public attention in 2011 after winning First Prize and all special jury prizes at the Montreal International Competition. Her very promising career was brought to an even higher level in 2013 when she won the Silver Medal and the Audience Award at the 14th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. In September 2015, she was named a BBC New Generation Artist, and in April 2016 she was awarded a fellowship from the Borletti-Buitoni Trust.
Her recent release of Bach’s Goldberg Variations debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. Classical Charts and was praised by reviewers worldwide. In addition to being called “a supremely intelligent reading” by the Sunday Times, it garnered her Gramophone‘s “Young Artist of the Year” award.
