For this album I wanted to record two major works of the piano repertoire which I have performed in concert for many years: Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition and Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit. These two pieces draw their inspiration from different artistic fields: painting and poetry. For this reason I decided to call the album “Poems and Pictures”. In order to balance the two dramatic works, I inserted two transcriptions of Schubert songs by Franz Liszt between them, which are also inspired by poetry: “The Miller and the Brook” and “To Be Sung on the Water”.
