About

Nicholas Angelich makes time stand still

Never rough nor austere, Nicholas Angelich's game excels during slow movements. Behind the mask of soft appearances lies a pianist who possesses a passionate and majestic game. Introducing his recital with the profoundness of a Bach chorale, and with the contrapuntal rigor of a Suite for piano, Nicholas Angelich then soars to the incredible heights of the romantic repertoire.

With the talent of a poet, the pianist plays Chopin's Nocturnes and delights the audience with some of the famous Polish composer's etudes.

Using his unique sense of rhythmic energy, he concludes the recital with the fascinating and worrying Kreisleriana by Schumann. Balance, measure and contemplation: these are the adjectives that best describe Nicholas Angelich who manages to mold his recital into a singular and exquisite poetic experience.
