Album information

Yoanna Prodanova’s recording debut, part of the Royal Academy of Music Bicentenary Series, focuses on music that is of personal significance to the young cellist and linked by two common themes: storytelling and the human voice. 

The Cello Sonata in G minor is one of the first pieces Prodanova performed in concert; its lyrical melodic lines find a perfect partner in the cello, one of the few instruments, other than voice and piano, that inspired Chopin. Fauré’s Élégie was the first piece that Prodanova played with an orchestra, aged 13. Her approach to this selection of early works is to treat each one like a short story with their own miniature world of colourfulness and simplicity. Two further works by Fauré, Romance, Op. 69, and the fast and palpitating Papillon, are both abundantly lyrical with poetic phrasing. Janáček’s Pohádka is based on the epic poem by Vasily Zhukovsky and tells the tale of Tsar Berendyey. The wealth of colours and variety of expression made this work an instant coup de coeur for Prodanova.

The Royal Academy of Music Bicentenary Series also includes debut recordings by Anna Geniushene (piano), Claudia Lucia Lamanna (harp) and Emily Nebel (violin).
