Tiersen Meets Chopin
Label: Ars Produktion
The Lithuanian pianist Ieva Dudaite combines in her recording two composers who have each cultivated an unmistakable personal style that has made them protagonists of their respective times and musical spheres. By confronting Chopin's works with the suggestive minimalist pieces of Yann Tiersen, she makes the connections between the two composers tangible. Ieva Dudaite is one of the most promising Lithuanian pianists of her generation, with a lengthy record of concerts across the globe, including some of the world’s most prestigious venues, such as the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, TivoliVredenburg Utrecht, DeSingel Antwerp, and performances in Italy, Germany, Ukraine, Mexico, the UK, and Spain. She played at some of the most renowned music festivals, including Grenoble Music Festival 2008, Trieste Music Festival 2010, Aurora Chamber Music Festival Sweden 2015, and Oxford Piano Festival 2016. Dudaite’s concerts have been broadcast by Lithuanian, Russian, and Dutch Radio and Television.
