Storyteller: Chopin, Liszt, Scriabin
On my album 'Storyteller', I focus on how Chopin, Liszt and Scriabin explored the literary forms of ballades, sonnets and poems, and how their compositions reflect the actual literary texts that inspired them. Apart from having a connection with literature, the title 'Storyteller' has a deeper meaning for me, since as a performing musician, this is what one should do - tell the stories to the listeners with fingers and emotions. It's just instead of words, we are using music.
- Anna Fedorova
"Most pertinently, ‘poetic’ is the best description for all of Fedorova’s playing."
- BBC music magazine
"Pianist Anna Fedorova plays with every shade of emotion. She plays the Ballades impeccably. Fedorova's CD lives up to its name, Storyteller."
