Franz Shubert

Franz Schubert ‘Journey’ - Schubert’s music has always fascinated me personally and in the past few years I have felt an inscreasing need to perform it publically. From this deeply felt attraction this recording was born. A long procès of this kind is not just about practicing, it’s about libing your life and allowing your own experiences to help you to understand Schubert’s music…

 

L'éducation musicale (FR)

A magnificent interpretation, interiorized, contrasted and poetic, of a big sincerity and without any affectation. Real Schubert… The great art, undoubtedly!

La mia Musica (It)

Irina Lankova is the ideal interpreter of Schubert, young and romantic, full of spontaneity, she is not distracted neither by the virtuosity no by the excess of contemplation

Pizzicato Magazine (Lux)

The most deeply moving interpretation due to the poetic sensibility of the pianist.

Recorded September 2012 at la Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Piano Steinway & Sons D No.395.870 (1966). Sound Engineer: Jean-Claude Gaberel. Piano Technician: Oliver Tille. Photography: Raphaël Gianelli-Meriano. Design: Celile Guedy.

Alexander Scriabin

‘Alexandre Scriabin: from Romantic to Mystic’ Alexandre Scriabin (1872-1915) is a fascinating character in the world of music at the transition between two centuries. His numerous works for piano reflect the evolution of his style: starting with romantic compositions influences by Chopin, he moves towards a personal language, marked by his mystic philosophical convictions derived from oriental doctrines and announces the atonal sounds of the new era…

 

The Independent

An unusually effective CD: her touch is genuinely poetic, and she works on a large tonal canvas, conjuring moods and atmospheres with compelling authority.

La Libre Belgique

It is a progression in a particular world, where Lankova, in perceptible harmony with the composer, joins the sonorous and the mystic, the form and the spirit. The play is clear, the lead is natural, the colors are infinite.

International Record Review

Lankova’s Scriabin CD is very fine indeed. A first–rate recording does justice to the wonderful rich array of sounds that she coaxes from her instrument.

Recorded September 2012 at la Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Piano Steinway & Sons D No.395.870 (1966). Sound Engineer: Jean-Claude Gaberel. Piano Technician: Oliver Tille. Photography: Raphaël Gianelli-Meriano. Design: Celile Guedy.

Frederic Chopin

‘I only express the soul and the heart’ said Chopin. All of Chopin’s Works, without exception, relate to the piano. Chopin was unique in his sonorities as well as introducing a new version of the instument as u munal voice. His famous 'rubato' – a subtel way of playing a melody when its musical expression is allowed to slightly alternate the rhythmical structure – became one of the essential characteristics of Romanticism.

 

Pianiste (FR)

She offers her own narrative with intimate, genuine playing and great sensitivity.

 

Recorded February 2008 in Switzerland at the Studio Tibor Varga. Piano Steinway & Sons. Project Director: Peter Bell. Sound Engineer: Jean-Claude Gaberel. Piano Technician: Joel Jobe.

Sergei Rachmaninov

Sergey Rachmaninov (1873-1943) is often considered as the last representative of the great Russian romantic tradition. He saw his instrumental works as ‘absolute’ music, first and foremost and intellectual pleasure to the listener, by beauty of sounds and forms…

 

La Libre Belgique (BE)

The eloquent, colourful and dynamic sound of the piano enables the listener to sense in an exceptional way the personal feelings of the interpreter, particularly in the Rachmaninov, where the music is passionate, extremely Russian, but never sugary. A beautiful temperament!

Klassiekcentraal (BE)

Lankova fully exploits the Steinway's capabilities; her playing combines almost masculin power with exquisite feminine refinement. This is what makes this pianist so special!

 

Recorded September 2004 in Brussels at the Studio Odeon 120. Piano Steinway & Sons. Sound Engineer: Bastien Gilson. Mastering: Jarek Jankovski.
