Info for Landscapes: Scarlatti, Schubert, Albéniz & Mompou
After releasing two recordings – the first devoted to Chopin (ZZT 347) and the second to Ravel and Scriabin (ALPHA 277) – and winning First Prize at the Géza Anda Competition in 2015, which gave his career a powerful momentum, the young American pianist Andrew Tyson has conceived a new tailor-made programme of music by Domenico Scarlatti, Schubert, Mompou and Albéniz. His programme focuses on landscapes, starting out from Federico Mompou’s piece of that name (Paisajes) and taking us on a journey elsewhere in Spain (sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti, Book of Iberia by Isaac Albéniz), the Austrian countryside (where Franz Schubert composed the Sonata in A Major D664.
