Hailed by the music press as one of the most gifted pianists of her generation and recipient of many international awards, established German-Italian pianist and ECHO winner Sophie Pacini invites us on a very personal journey across the pianistic cosmos.
In her own words: “On this album, I have combined pieces which have accompanied and reassured me in seemingly small, but ultimately crucial moments of my life.”
Puzzle represents a musical résumé of the award-winning pianist's life to date. Returning to her beloved Chopin Sophie combines recordings of short stories (the Ballade No. 1 in G minor), night pieces (the C-sharp minor Nocturne), improvisations (the A-flat major Impromptu), refinements (five études) and quiet dances (five waltzes), alongside interludes (three preludes) by Alexander Scriabin.
