Pianistic Plea for the Power of Music

Pianist Yulianna Avdeeva makes her Pentatone debut with Resilience, presenting music by Szpilman, Shostakovich, Weinberg and Prokofiev, composers who – each in their own way – maintained themselves in times of great instability.

The focal point of this album is Władysław Szpilman, a Polish Jew who survived World War II thanks to the power of his music. He is widely known as the title hero of Roman Polanski’s award-winning film The Pianist. Incited by the unique opportunity to play on Szpilman’s house piano, this recording project helped Avdeeva to cope with the challenges of our current times, and it may offer fortitude and consolation to listeners as well.

A pianist of fiery temperament and virtuosity, Yulianna Avdeeva plays with power, conviction and sensibility, having won over audiences all over the world.

Press reviews

MusicWeb International

With any themed collection my first question is always does it make musical sense as a recital. The answer with Resilience is an unequivocal Yes regardless of what one makes of the theme. Avdeeva reveals herself as pianist of great insight and dexterity, poetry and passion.
