De la Nuit - New CD of Dénes Várjon
The prestigious label ECM released on August 31st the new solo album of Dénes Várjon. The CD entitled "De la Nuit" ("The Night") features Schumann's Fantasiestücke Op.12, Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit and Béla Bartók's Out of Doors.

As Jürg Stenzl writes in the liner notes “All three works were bold forays into fundamentally new music that far transcended the limits of their time. They require pianists for whom transcendent virtuosity is second nature. ” The album was recorded at Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI, Lugano in April 2016, and produced by Manfred Eicher. This is Dénes Várjon's second solo album at ECM.
