 Salle Paderewski (part of the Casino de Montbenon) in Lausanne, Switzerland, has a special place in my musical life. Built in 1908 in the midst of magnificent gardens with a breathtaking view over the mountains and Lac Leman, this hall was named after the great Polish pianist, composer and politician Ignacy Paderewski.

 There, I performed the complete Etudes-Tableaux by Rachmaninov, I gave a Chopin recital in 1999 and a rendition of Rachmaninov's complete Preludes in 2002. The live recordings of these concerts were internationally acclaimed (Répertoire 10, Luister 10, Musica 5, etc.) and caused a breakthrough in my career. On May 20 this year I returned to this legendary concert hall with a program featuring Preludes by Bach (BWV 933-938), Scriabin (Opus 11) and Chopin (Opus 28). 

Magic of the moment

 Again, the recording of this event is a statement of my love for the cycle of Preludes as a musical form as well as my conviction that, contrary to the studio, only live recordings seem to capture the essence of music. In the concert hall, there is no distraction by the limitless possibilities to play over and over again, striving for ultimate perfection. There is only one choice: the inevitability of the moment. This unique evening in Lausanne made me experience that magic moment again. 

Your support will help cover audio production, artwork booklet, photo material, translations, cd replication and PR costs.

(Dutch translation)

Salle Paderewski (een onderdeel van het Casino de Montbenon) in Lausanne, Zwitserland, heeft een speciale plek in mijn muziekleven. Gebouwd in 1908 temidden van magnifieke tuinen met adembenemend uitzicht over de Alpen en het meer van Genève, is deze zaal naar de grote Poolse pianist, componist en staatsman Ignacy Paderewski vernoemd.

Daar voerde ik Rachmaninov's Études-Tableux uit, gaf ik in 1999 een Chopin recital en in 2002 vertolkte ik alle 24 Preludes van Rachmaninov. De live-opnamen van deze concerten zijn internationaal bekroond (Répertoire 10, Luister 10, Musica 5, etc.) en veroorzaakten een doorbraak in mijn muzikale loopbaan.

Op 20 mei dit jaar keerde ik terug naar deze legendarische concertzaal met een programma bestaande uit Preludes van Bach (BWV 933-938), Scriabin (Opus 11) and Chopin (Opus 28).

De noodzakelijkheid van het moment

Ook de opnamen van deze avond vormen een statement voor mijn liefde voor cycli van Preludes als muzikale vorm en bevestiging van mijn overtuiging dat, in tegenstelling tot studio-opnamen, alleen live-opnamen de kern van de muziek kunnen ontsluiten. In de concertzaal wordt men niet afgeleid door de grenzeloze mogelijkheden om tot het uiterste te perfectioneren. Daar is slechts één keuze: de noodzakelijkheid van het moment. Op deze unieke avond in Lausanne heb ik dat magische moment weer mogen ervaren.
