|Schumann:||Etudes symphoniques, Op. 13|
Heralded as “bright, expressive and moving to the extreme” (Belgischer Rundfunk), pianist Zhang Zuo demonstrates the artistic versatility that has earned her a spot in the BBC New Generation Artists program. Between Beethoven’s cool-burning Sonata No. 24 and the electricity of Ravel’s La valse, she explores the chromatic genesis in Ligeti’s astonishing Musica ricercata. The Cleveland Plain-Dealer has praised her “astute ear for the dark lyricism and jubilant outbursts” of Schumann’s Etudes symphoniques.
