Mount Everest summiter

»This is a Mount Everest!« With Beethoven's »Hammerklavier Sonata«, pianists climb peaks: not only Dina Ugorskaya, who died much too early, recognized this. The musically radical work is still a touchstone. Beatrice Rana, who despite her relatively young age can already look back on an outstanding career, is one of these pianists: She began her piano studies before starting school, and made her debut with orchestra at the age of nine. In the years that followed, she made a name for herself at international competitions, with the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2013 marking a milestone for the then 20-year-old. Since then, the Italian has fascinated audiences worldwide with piano literature that shows as much character as its interpreter: Thus, alongside Beethoven's forward-looking and equally challenging »Hammerklavier Sonata« - alongside works by Alexander Scriabin - she places Chopin's B-flat minor Sonata. That this, with its unusual modulations, is far more than its funeral march that has become famous, was already known to Robert Schumann, so that he decided in amazement: »Music is not this«. No, it is much more - a world of its own that Beatrice Rana will reveal to us.
