The French pianist Patrick Hemmerlé, who was born in Kuala Lumpur and currently lives in Cambridge, has embarked on a series with IndeSens, entitled ‘ Piano Modern recital’. The first issue begins with the tone poem ‘Pan’ by the Czech composer Viteslav Novák (1870-1949). Novak also produced an orchestral version of this piano,piece and both versions have been recorded several times before. The work oscillates between delicacy and passion, and in this recording by Patrick Hemmerlé is played very evocatively, as the pianist gives full expression to its bold harmonic developments.
Pianiste né en 1981, jusqu’à présent discret, Patrick Hemmerlé impressionne par sa maîtrise du temps musical et séduit par sa manière de déployer les sonorités.
Born in 1981, the pianist Patrick Hemmerlé, always playing with discretion, impresses us with his mastery of musical tempo and seduces us with his way of managing tonal sonorities.
