Hélène Mercier, Alain Lefèvre Recital for two pianos

Mercier-Lefevre © Simon Fowler-Warner Classics - Copy


The consistently successful recitals of Canadian virtuoso pianist Alain Lefèvre in Greece have rightly made him one of the public’s most favourite international performers. This year, he teams up with his equally famous compatriot Hélène Mercier, presenting two works by the late child prodigy André Mathieu, hailed by the critics as the “Canadian Mozart”, composing his first works for piano at the age of four years old. ‘’Mathieu’s music is brimming with sensitivity in the mould of Rachmaninoff and does not hide its intention to move the listener in a direct and unpretentious way. Of particular appeal are also the world premiere of a composition by Lefèvre himself and the performance of Ravel’s beloved Boléro, whose version for two pianos, transcribed by the composer himself, is rarely presented.
