Item Number: NX.DACOCD761

Young Danish pianist Elisabeth Nielsen created a sensation when she won the Steinway Piano Competition and straight after started a career before she even finished the Music Academy in Copenhagen. This recording was made during her studies in Italy and is marked by a virtuoso technique, a long singing tone and a deep musical understanding of the works. Her Bach is lean, classic and totally in style and the many sides of Schumann captured to perfection. Few pianists today can make the 6th Prokofiev Sonata sound more daring and at the same time so deeply moving. This release also includes an illustrated booklet with a long essay on the young pianist who is experiencing her rise to greatness.
