Fini Henriques: Piano Music
Format: COMPACT DISC
Fini Henriques composed three albums of piano music inspired by children. Like Robert Schumann in his Kinderszenen all the music is within the frame of a few minutes playing time. It’s pleasantly melodic and harmonic, and it sounds easier to play than it is. Danish pianist Thomas Tronhjem has collected over 50 of these miniatures in this first ever recording. Do not miss this wonderful collection. Charming, engaging and utterly lovely! Thomas Trondhjem was born in Denmark in 1954. He studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Århus under Poul La Cour, where, after attending the Academy’s soloist class, he took a diploma with distinction in 1983 and made a successful concert début in 1985 with excellent reviews. He has received many prestigious and highly esteemed awards and scholarships in Denmark including Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik’s Scholarship and the Jacob Gade Scholarship. He has performed as a soloist with various orchestras in Denmark and abroad and has played piano concertos by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann and Saint-Saëns as well as Rachmaninov’s first and second piano concertos.
