Stephanie McCallum, piano

2013 sees the bicentenary of the births not only of Wagner and Verdi but also of the maverick French composer Charles-Valentin Alkan. Alkan’s music was little appreciated during his lifetime (1813–83), and in the century which followed, when he was largely lost from sight, but now he is increasingly recognised as one of the most individual personalities in all music. The five albums he called Recueils de chants – miniature tone-poems which marry Classical constraint to virtuoso Romantic excess – provide an attractive gateway to his freewheeling imagination. This is the first volume of a two-CD series presenting the first recording of the complete Chants in over twenty years and is accompanied by the first-ever recording of the ‘Introduction and Impromptu’ Une fusée.

Stephanie McCallum is Associate Professor in piano at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music of the University of Sydney. Described by Anthony Clarke in The Bulletin as ‘one of Australia's foremost pianists’, she has enjoyed an international career of over thirty years, appearing on over forty CDs (including fifteen solo discs) and in hundreds of live solo and concerto performances. Playing a repertoire from the eighteenth to the 21st century, she is especially noted for her performances of virtuosic music of the nineteenth century, particularly the music of Liszt and Alkan, and also for her advocacy of demanding contemporary solo and ensemble scores.
