Composer: Liszt, Schumann, Chopin

One of the most respected pianists of his generation, American Nicholas Angelich has a firm reputation as a soloist and chamber musician. Having made his concerto debut at the age of seven, he went on to study at the Paris Conservatoire with such renowned artists as Aldo Ciccolini, Yvonne Loriod, and Michel Beroff. He is a laureate of Casadesus and Gina Bachauer International Piano Competitions, as well as a recipient of the Schallplatten Prize and the Young Talent Award at the International Klavierfestival Ruhr.

As the title suggests the repertoire Angelich has selected comes full circle, by way of dedications from and to three of the 19th century’s greatest pianist/composers – Schumann’s Kreisleriana dedicated to Chopin, two of Chopin’s Op.10 Etudes dedicated to Liszt, and Liszt’s B minor Piano Sonata dedicated to Schumann.
