Anna Vinnitskaya plays Ravel
- Pavane pour une infante défunte
- Miroirs, 5 pieces for piano
- Gaspard de la Nuit
Anna Vinnitskaya (piano)
Following a first solo recital (2008) and a successful Ravel-Prokofiev concerto recording (2010), this is the third recording of Russian pianist Anna Vinnitskaya for Naive.
The recording presents two of the heights of Ravel’s piano repertoire, ‘Gaspard de la Nuit’ and ‘Miroirs’, performed many times in recital before this recording.
In both works, as well as in the mysterious ‘Pavane pour une infant défunte’, Anna Vinnitskaya displays the whole range of her skills: intense delicacy, amazing legato and control of dynamics, beautiful expressiveness, and a strong personal style.
Anna Vinnitskaya, aged 29, is developing an amazing concert career in Germany, Belgium and the UK. She won First Prize at the Queen Elizabeth Competition in 2007 and an Echo Klassik award (Germany) in 2011 for her latest recording.
