Crescendo Magazine called her “the discovery of the year.” Concerti said she is “on her way to the very top.” German-Greek pianist Danae Dörken is, at age 26, among the elite of a new generation of internationally acclaimed artists. She electrifies audiences and peer musicians alike with her exceptional charisma and stunning technical skills at the piano. Her performance East and West is adapted from her latest solo album of the same name, which was nominated for an ICMA Award and the prestigious German Record Critics’ Award:
Frédéric François Chopin (1810-1849) – Polonaise Op. 26, No. 1
Manolis Kalomiris (1883-1962) – Nocturne
Manolis Kalomiris – 5 Preludes
Béla Bartók (1881-1945) – Romanian Folk Dances BB 68
– Intermission –
FranzSchubert (1797-1828) – 12 Ländler D 790
Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) – Wedding Day at Troldhaugen
Francis Poulenc (1899-1963) – Huit Nocturnes FP 56
Manuel de Falla (1876-1946) – Danse rituelle du feu
East and West embodies Danae Dörken’s feeling that our diversity is what ultimately brings us together and gives us enormous strength. All of the works in this program share the commonality of being heavily influenced by folk music traditions of different countries around the world. The folkloristic character of these compositions highlights the individual elements of each culture that render the pieces unique and underscore the necessity for them to be loved and remembered forever.
