Gianluca Imperato - piano
Reinhold Glière (1875-1956) was a Russian composer and violinist. His works draw inspiration from his great example Chopin, as well as from
various other Russian composers and contemporaries: Rachmaninoff, Scriabin for his harmonic and pianistic style, and Khachaturian and
Kabalevsky for the folklore elements and Soviet realism.
This new recording contains his 25 Preludes Op. 30, following the same tonal sequence as Chopin’s 24 Preludes but adding a 25th prelude in C
major. Furthermore we hear several character pieces, of great charm, atmosphere and melodic invention.
Italian pianist Gianluca Imperato won many prizes at international piano competitions, as well as the prestigious Solti Foundation grant.
“Sensitive and mature pianist, a true revelation” wrote the Italian newspaper La Repubblica.
