Aline van Barentzen

8.99 € 6.75 €

Aline van Barentzen is that kind of pianist, for some reason largely forgotten today but eminently worth exploring – her pedigree is remarkable, and her playing is original, forthright, and musical, with beautiful tonal colours, expansive phrasing, broad dynamic range, and wonderful timing. This release was carefully considered and none of these radio performances have been published before and aims to bring her artistry back into the present.
