‘Affettuoso’ and ‘Ardamente’
January 2011 – Two live CD’s have been released in 2010, with works by Schumann and Chopin. ‘Affettuoso’ contains two piano concertos with the North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra conducted by Michel Tabachnik. ‘Ardamente’ contains the Fantasies for piano solo.
Both CD’s are recorded live in concert and have got a very good press. In a 5-star-review, NRC Handelsblad writes: “The Bulgarian master pianist Marietta Petkova [..] is the ideal interpreter of Schumann’s tumultuous emotional outbursts and Chopin’s hypersensitive reflections. [..] The result is intoxicating and inevitable.” Luister Magazine adds: “Nothing left to be wished for.”
