Notes and Editorial Reviews

Veronika Böhmová immediately enchants you with her sheer vivacity – both when you meet her face to face and when seeing her playing the piano. In addition to her teachers (Ivan Klánský, Arkadi Zenzipér), she has also gained experience with a number of other remarkable pianists including Berman, Béroff and Hellwig.

The conductors with whom she has performed include Ji?í B?lohlávek, Jakub Hr?ša and Paul Goodwin. Her most significant successes are second prizes at the Maria Canals Competition in Barcelona and the Anton G. Rubinstein Wettbewerb in Dresden and progressing to the semifinal of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. Following her debut at the Prague Spring
Read more and on numerous renowned stages throughout Europe, Veronika Böhmová has now made her eagerly anticipated debut recording.

Like the pianist herself, the selected repertoire is unusual: besides Prokofiev’s weighty “war” Sonata No. 8 and Stravinsky’s fiendishly difficult piano version of Le chant du rossignol, the CD features the two Russian composers’ rarely played yet brilliant etudes. The album is an exquisite delicacy served on a silver tray to real gourmets and connoisseurs.
