Piano 21 presents acclaimed pianist Cyprien Katsaris in a 6-album chronological journey from Beethoven's first composition for the piano to his last. As well as including a range of Beethoven's original works, the set also includes rarely heard transcriptions by arrangers including Ludwig van Beethoven, Carl Czerny, Anton Diabelli, Modest Mussorgsky, Richard Wagner, Louis Winkler and Camille Saint-Saëns. Mr. Katsaris’ work has been honoured and recognized by the following awards: “Artist of UNESCO for Peace” (1997), “Commandeur de l’Ordre de Mérite du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg” (2009) and “Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters” (France 2000). He also received the “Médaille Vermeil de la Ville de Paris” (2001) and the “Nemitsas Prize” (Cyprus, 2011). He is a member of ADAP, the Association of Artists for Peace and Honorary President of “Lisztomanias International”. “Katsaris leaves you with the impression that there are two or more pianists at the keyboard, such is his ability to conjure up a variety of orchestral timbres.” (Gramophone)
