Piano power-house with exceptional technique learned at the Moscow Conservatoire, Boris Berezovsky performs bolstered by pure Russian tradition, and poetic virtuosity shines through in his performances both on stage and in recording. A regular star of the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées stage, Berezovsky returns to Paris for a recital dedicated entirely to French repertoire. Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy, two major French composers of the early 20th century, have been ever-present in Boris Berezovsky’s career for many years. Both composers, in their own way, brought French music into the modern age; an age which Messiaen wholly embodied.
Here, surely, we have the truest successor to the great Russian pianists.
