Format: COMPACT DISC
Every year, the Orléans International Piano Competition recognizes a young male or female pianist and, through their performance, also acknowledges the best there is in composition. Mikhaïl Bouzine is a person who has great passion for the contemporary repertoire he envisions, demonstrating exceptional, keen musicianship. In collaboration with B Records, he presents a stunning, unique program on this album. Born in Moscow in January 1995, Mikhaïl Bouzine is a one-man orchestra. A creator of sounds. Composer of an often repetitive and bewitching music, he knows how to be facetious, surprising and confusing in his numerous works, as shown by the cycle he has been developing since 2012 on the letters of the Cyrillic alphabet. Facing the piano, he also becomes a dancer and a conductor. An incredible instrumentalist, he received one of the greatest educations possible, at the Moscow Conservatory with Andrei Shibko, whose master was one of the disciples of Heinrich Neuhaus, founder of the great Russian school. The piano was not enough for him, and Bouzine therefore also received harpsichord lessons from Tatiana Zenaïshvili, and composition lessons from Vladimir Tarnopolsky, a pupil of Edison Denisov. His pianistic performances reveal an obvious charisma, imbuing his performances with phenomenal energy and precision, always with respect to the score.
