Wonders

She is only 14 years old, but she has already dazzled the greatest. Grigory Sokolov himself, so sparing in his words, was full of praise when he heard her for the first time: “What one is listening to here is a performance by an adult”. Therefore, beyond the clichés and prejudices, coming to hear Alexandra Dovgan (Moscow, 2007) is to immerse oneself in her personal vision of three great figures of the 19th century: Beethoven, of whom she will offer his Sonata The Tempest, with those contrasts between the high and bass registers of the keyboard so genuine of the composer. Then Schumann, who left at the Vienna Carnival an extraverted, brilliant and colourful work that already seems to claim for the orchestra. And finally Chopin, with an integral of his Ballads, composed between 1831 and 1842, major works of the Polish genius, who can be considered the inventor of the genre. Authentic wonders of Romantic music.
