A piano recital by
Jeremy Eskenazi -
heard by the late
'... evident affinity with music requiring rapid rippling imagery and astute tonal control.'
Music and water — one thinks of La mer (Debussy); La Tempesta di Mare ('The Storm at Sea', Vivaldi); Peer Gynt Suite No 2, Op 55 — Stormful aften på havet (Grieg); Peter Grimes (Britten); Vltava — Moldau (Smetana); 'Festival at Baghdad. The Sea' (Rimsky Korsakov, Scheherazade); Dover Beach (Samuel Barber, 1931) and so on.
Here, in a programme devised by pianist Jeremy Eskenazi, H2O is found in works of Liszt, Debussy, Beethoven and Chopin.
Born in Paris in 1978, Eskenazi is regularly invited to give concerts, seminars, workshops and lecture-recitals around the world...
