Info for Me-Su-Bach

This is Stern’s 8th album, and her previous releases have won awards including the Diapason Decouverte. Bach is one of Stern’s favorite composers and this album comprises some of her favorite pieces by him.

“Her piano playing bears the mark of three great pianists who formed her and of whom she managed to create an improbable synthesis: The panache of Martha Argerich, the musicality of Leon Fleisher and the impeccable finish of Krystian Zimerman.” (Diapason Magazine)

“Her piano playing bears the mark of three great pianists who formed her and of whom she managed to create an improbable synthesis: The panache of Martha Argerich, the musicality of Leon Fleisher and the impeccable finish of Krystian Zimerman.” (Diapason Magazine)

Edna Stern began her studies in Israel with Viktor Derevianko, a student of Heinrich Neuhaus. She continued studying with Krystian Zimerman at the Basel Hochschule and with Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Institute and at the Lake Como International Piano Foundation. Her repertoire ranges from Bach to Berio. Her recordings are highly praised by critics, receiving such awards as the Diapason d’Or, Diapason Découverte, Arte Best CD, Gramophone’s Upcoming Artist, and the Sélection Le Monde of best classical CDs for 2010 (Mozart Concerti/Zig-Zag Territoires) and 2014 (Beethoven Sonatas/Luna). She has performed at prestigious halls and festivals such as the Olympia in Paris, the Roque d’Anthéron Festival, the Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, Munich’s Hekulessaal, the Colmar International Festival, Paris’ Châtelet Theater, Moscow’s Music-House, Petronas in Kuala Lumpur, and Musashino Hall in Tokyo; she has performed in solo recitals and with orchestras, with conductors such as Claus Peter Flor and Andris Nelsons. Stern gives masterclasses all over the world, including at the CNSM in Paris, Rutgers University, and the Tel-Aviv University’s Zubin Mehta School of Music. She has been a professor at the Royal College of London since 2009 and is the artist in residence at the Théâtre Impérial of Compiègne.

The Imperial Theatre of Compiègne
a jewel of architecture, was built on the request of Napoléon III in 1867 for the purpose of entertaining his court but was inaugurated only in 1991. It is situated just an hour away from Paris and is an extraordinary venue for music, thanks to its outstanding acoustical qualities. Conductor Carlo Maria Giulini considered the hall “as one of the most perfect in the world, and even superior to the Musikverein of Vienna,” known as the standard for concert halls.

The only musical and lyrical venue between Paris and Lille, the Imperial Theatre, under the artistic direction of Eric Rouchaud, has developed since 2009 an ambitious project to strengthen the appreciation and love for music through personal contact and the forging of relationships between the artists and the audience. It is based on a continuous and renewed artistic presence, on artistic collaborations, and on policies supporting artists, especially those of the younger generation. It hosts a wide variety of musical and lyrical projects from baroque to the present (including operas, recitals, chamber and symphonic music, choirs). It grants a significant and major place to the voice, as well as to choreographies, musicals, and other multidisciplinary shows.

In 2014, the Imperial Theatre of Compiègne acquired a new Concert Grand Steinway. This is the piano Edna Stern plays in this recording.
