Jasmin For

Jasmin Fors piano Liszt Sonata in B Minor Chopin Ballades in F & G Minor

Trois nouvelles études ha he hand of an artist reaches out, through rambling centuries of history, sharing, in his work, the thorny roses of our humanity. Struggling to bring order and depth in thought and sense, and though burdened with life, creating is still his essence. Jasmin Fors has put her personality in the league and released an ambitious, personal album with a credible and impressive multiartistic ensemble. She introduces herself as a unique Chopin player,

holding up the magic of music as if it were a feather in the air.

–Kare Eskola / Finnish Broadcasting Union (YLE)

Finnish pianist Jasmin Fors is without doubt an artist of a highly sensitive nature. Definitely hear this disc for the Liszt, which is refreshing, commanding and strong. There is grandeur aplenty here, but what seals the deal is Fors’ attention to detail,

particularly in the inner voices. –Colin Clarke / International Piano

WALTER GIESEKING Debussy: the first Columbia recordings Walter Gieseking’s name has long been synonymous with the music of Debussy, but today we know him largely from his later1950s recordings; here we have his earlier accounts, made in the 1930s and 40s, and considered by many to be even finer.

UNA BOURNE Australian recording pioneer Una Bourne (1882–1974) was fêted in her own lifetime: a child prodigy, she later recorded widely for HMV in the acoustic era before retiring from touring in 1939. This first-ever reissue demonstrates her virtuosity and charm in music from Cyril Scott and Chaminade to Grieg and Weber.
