Lada Valešová - Piano

“Intimate Studies” is the innovative debut release from Czech pianist Lada Valešová who has developed a fresh and intriguing programme of works that link both teacher and student alike during the early part of the 20th century.. The CD features 20th century piano music composed by four of her native country’s leading composers: “In the Mist” (Janáček), “Suite for Piano Op.13” and “Allegro Moderato” (Haas), “Film en Miniature H.148” (Martinů) and “Spring Op.22a” (Suk).

However, of particular note is the performance of a rare collection of eleven tone poems and studies, some complete miniature works, some unfinished kernels of ideas written by Janacek under the collected title: “Intimate Studies”.

Born in Pilsen in the Western part of the Czech Republic, Lada Valešová is already established as one of the leading young concert pianists in Europe. She is a graduate of Prague Conservatoire and Prague Music Academy and studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London where she was awarded a full three-year scholarship.

Lada has won several prizes including two awards at the International Smetana Piano Competition. Her teachers include the Russian pianist and pedagogue Valentina Kameníková and Eugene Indjic, the outstanding pianist and pupil of Arthur Rubinstein, while James Gibb and Paul Hamburger were her teachers in London. She has performed at London’s Wigmore Hall, at St. John’s Smith Square under the patronage of the Friends of Philharmonia Orchestra with Czech virtuoso violinist Bohuslav Matoušek, (Cannes Award Winner) and David Cohen, cello, in a tribute to Czech Music; at the Three Choirs Festival, the Warwick International Music Festival, the Ulverston International Music Festival and at the Festivais de Outono, Portugal. Lada’s piano playing has received high recognition from various artists including the late Sir George Solti and she has had the honour of working with Galina Vishnevskaja and Mstislav Rostropovich.

Lada Valešová is currently a professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London, UK.

“This CD is homage to the innermost intimate inspirations of these four composers, as well as to Janáček and Suk as teachers. Beside their very busy public and artistic lives they found time and a ‘calling’ to give themselves selflessly to the task of passing on their knowledge to the next generation of Czech composers. And that is where partly lies the answer to my question about the abundance of outstanding composers produced by that small, but immensely cultured and talented nation at the heart of Europe” Lada Valesova
