Notes and Editorial Reviews

The 2015 Jaen International Piano Competition was won by a young Canadian pianist of Ukrainian descent, Anastasia Rizikov, who was also awarded the prizes for best performances of Spanish and Contemporary Music. This is reflected in her interpretations of Albeniz's radiant and virtuoso Triana and the work commissioned for the 57th edition of the competition, Sonando Maria Magdalena, which transforms the traditional Jaen melody La carrasquilla into a tender and powerful personal journey. The program is completed by the disquieting beauty of Beethoven's "Tempest" Sonata and the breathtaking energy of Grieg's only work in the same genre.
