KARIN KEI NAGANO

Following her highly acclaimed initial recordings Mozart: Piano Concertos Nos. 12 & 13 (2014) and J. S. Bach: Inventions & Sinfonies, BWV 772-801 (2017), pianist Karin Kei Nagano now presents an inspired new album, Reincarnation: Schubert - Messiaen. “The two pieces on this album, both part of larger circular anthologies, convey the cyclical notion of end and of beginning: reincarnation. While Schubert’s Sonata in B-flat represents a bittersweet and painful negotiation with death in a moment where his life is fading, Messiaen’s Première communion de la Vierge celebrates the overwhelming joy of new life and birth. In bringing together Schubert and Messiaen, this album intends to bring to light those profound and fundamental human sentiments that I hope the listener can identify with, sentiments that we, as a society, can find solace in.” - Karin Kei Nagano
