Eva-Maria May concludes her cycle of piano and chamber music by Francis Poulenc with this, the fifth, recording. For this delightful combination of works for cello or flute and piano, a song cycle and the attractive L’invitation au château, the pianist has assembled a group of renowned musicians, including the principal clarinetist of the Bavarian State Opera, Andreas Schablas, and cellist Martin Rummel. Intensively furthered by her former teacher, Professor Peter Hollfelder at the Hochschule für Musik Würzburg, she made her debut at 14 performing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Piano Concert A-Major KV 414. At the Musikhochschule in Munich Eva-Maria May studied under Eric Then-Bergh and later in the master class of the well-known Hungarian Chopin interpreter Julian von Károlyi. Further studies with Igor Shukov, André Tschaikovsky and Valentin Gheorghiu deepened her love for Russian piano music. Eva-Maria May (award winner of the German Music School and Conservatory Contest) teaches at the Würzburg School for Music and lives in Munich.
