During her London concerts Luiza Borac will be launching her latest CD - Chants nostalgique
Described by Jessica Duchen (Classical Piano) as 'reminding of nothing less than great Martha Argerich as she took the audience by storm', internationally acclaimed Romanian pianist Luiza Borac is back in London for a series of musical treats.
Luiza Borac's playlist includes work by Constantin Silvestri, George Enescu, Franz Schubert, Leopold Godowski and Friedrich Kreisler.
Luiza Borac has captured international accolades for her committed performances of the music of George Enescu and Dinu Lipatti, as well as the prowess of her research and programming. On Chants nostalgiques she comes up with an ingenious track list of treasured songs transcribed for piano that includes numerous premieres. The title track is a first recording of a group of three songs composed by the legendary Romanian conductor Constantin Silvestri. There are Liszt arrangements of some of Schubert's most classic songs – including Gretchen am Spinnrade, Erlkönig and Ave Maria – Rachmaninov's take on Kreisler's famous Liebesleid and Liebesfreud, and Luiza's own transcription of Tárrega's timeless guitar solo Requerdos de la Alhambra, the first ever version recorded with piano.
