During his studies, pianist and composer Florian Nagel drew on the teachings of two masters with diametrically opposed approaches to music: according to him, Marcel Bitsch brought him "wisdom" and Claude Ballif, "folly". He has written numerous pieces for the piano along with vocal and chamber music. His first international success came with Alice in Wonderland for piano four hands and narrator, an orchestral version of which was premiered in March 2018 by the Orchestra national du Capitole de Toulouse.
Nagel's Piano Book connects old and new, drawing on the past while remaining firmly anchored in modern times. The 25 remarkably inventive pieces in this collection present an astonishing diversity of styles. From the Prélude et Fuga Antica to the study for the Octaves and the Hommage Ligeti et Rautavaara, this volume offers a rich selection of the piano's potential today. Written equally for concert performance and for the perfection of technique, it also contains an educational component in which the musical form is placed at the service of a wide-ranging imagination.
The recording by the composer brings us one of many possible interpretations.
