Notes and Editorial Reviews

Anamorfosi. In Greek, the word signifies the reshaping (ana) of a form or image (Morfe). Since the Renaissance, artists have reshaped and experimented with perspectives on images. However, such reshaping can also occur in music, and this idea constitutes the concept of this album. The starting point of this album are compositions by Chopin and Ravel, which are subsequently transformed into contemporary idiom and “perspective,” in the Chopiniata by Clement Doucet or Anamorfosi by Salvatore Sciarrino. This release is part of the SWUK series in Belgium in which only the very best upcoming young talents perform. Born into a family of musicians, Yannick Van De Velde quickly became devoted to music. He is a prizewinner in many international Read more competitions, including the Busoni Competition, the Piano Campus Competition in Paris, and the Nany Phillepart Foundation Competition. Strongly interested in contemporary music, he recently played the world premiere of “Chanson” for piano and orchestra by Jean-Frederic Neuburger and “Dream” of Frederic Rzweski. Read less
