Info zu Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition & Other Piano Works

When the Russian designer and architect Viktor Hartmann died unexpectedly of an aneurysm in 1873, Mussorgsky fell into a state of profound depression. The two artists had grown close. A memorial exhibition was quickly planned, and over four hundred of Hartmann’s works were displayed. Some of the paintings and sketches exhibited were the source of inspiration for Mussorgsky as he set out to compose “Pictures at an Exhibition,” a suite of brief movements penned in June 1874 – three months after the exposition took place. Seemingly depicting the viewer wandering through the gallery, moving from one painting to the next, the piece has become one of the giants of the piano repertoire, and has been orchestrated by a number of composers, including the splendid version by Maurice Ravel. “Pictures at an Exhibition” is one of François Dumont’s warhorses. In the present album, alongside the celebrated suite, the French pianist offers a selection of rarely heard piano works by Mussorgsky. They hail from two very different periods – his early years, and the very last year of the composer’s life. They offer a glimpse into Mussorgsky’s pianistic skills, and are heavily influenced by Russian folklore and traditions. François Dumont’s career was launched by his success in major international piano competitions, including one of the top prizes in the 2010 Chopin Competition in Warsaw. He has performed in some of the major concert halls around the world.

François Dumont
Von Monat zu Monat setzt sich François Dumont als einer der heutigen meist talentierten Klavierspieler durch. Preisträger (5ter Platz) des Chopinwettbewerbs 2010 in Warschau, zu dessen Jury Martha Argerich, Nelson Freire und Adam Harasiewicz gehörten, wurde der junge französische Pianist auch 2011 in der Kategorie 'Révélation instrumentale 'bei den' Victoires de la musique classique' nominiert.

1985 in Lyon geboren wurde er mit 14 Jahren in die Pariser Musikhochschule (Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris) aufgenommen, wo er mit Bruno Rigutto und dessen Assistenten arbeitete. Seine weitere Ausbildung machte er dann bei Fou T’Song, Menahem Pressler, Murray Perahia oder noch Dmitri Bashkirov im Rahmen der Serie Klavier**** (Paris) oder der Internationalen Akademie Como (Italien).

Nach dem Gewinn des Wettbewerbs Jean Françaix zeichnet er 2008 in La Chaux-de-fonds sämtliche Mozartsonaten für Anima Records auf. Von der Kritik gelobt fällt diese Gesamtaufnahme durch die Schönheit ihrer Phrasierungen, ihre Innerlichkeit, ihre strahlende Heiterkeit, sowie ihren prächtigen Wohlklang auf. Dieses Chopinalbum ist seine zweite Plattenproduktion und seine erste Mitarbeit mit Artalinna.
