  • Recital New Ross Piano Festival

The other solo recital was given by Swiss pianist Cédric Pescia, who won the 2002 Gina Bachauer competition in Salt Lake City with some unusual repertoire choices (Bach´s Goldberg Variations and Mozart´s Concerto in E flat, K271).

In New Ross he offered Couperin, Messiaen, Chopin and Debussy, and had interesting slants on everything he played. (...) His most memorable achievement was the wonderful, evocative clarity of his account of Le Courlis cendré from Messiaen´s Catalogue d´Oiseaux.
