Yulianna Avdeeva piano

Rising Russian star Yulianna Avdeeva illuminates the deep spiritual connection between Chopin and JS Bach. Chopin began each day with Bach's Well-tempered Clavier, a collection that formed the bedrock of his musical thinking; it was the only score he took with him to the Mallorcan monastery in Valldemosa.

Yulianna begins with the magnificent Toccata in D and grand French Overture, moving on to the polyphonic complexity of Chopin's Sonata No. 3, where fugue and canon-like episodes play a crucial role in the architecture of the piece. We'll hear, too, three Mazurkas, those wistful, elusive dances which can only be realised through the 'stolen time' of rubato.
