Ris­ing Stars

Three to look out for…

BBC Music Magazine - - The Full Score -

Laura Farré Rozada Pi­anist

Born: Barcelona, Spain Ca­reer high­light: In 2018, I was se­lected for the Birm­ing­ham Con­tem­po­rary Mu­sic Group’s NEXT Scheme and re­leased my de­but al­bum, which has brought many ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Mu­si­cal hero: Glenn Gould for his orig­i­nal­ity and creativ­ity and for push­ing the bound­aries of per­for­mance; Maria Cal­las, an ex­tra­or­di­nary artist with such a strong char­ac­ter; and Hayk Me­likyan for his pro­mo­tion of con­tem­po­rary mu­sic.

Dream con­cert: It would be pre­mier­ing Du­tilleux’s Pi­ano Con­certo, but un­for­tu­nately he never wrote one! It would have been amaz­ing to meet him and try to con­vince him to write more pi­ano mu­sic.

Marta Gar­dolin­ska Con­duc­tor

Born: Warsaw, Poland Ca­reer high­light: Learn­ing Rach­mani­nov’s Sec­ond Sym­phony in 48 hours and jump­ing in to con­duct it with the Bournemout­h Sym­phony Or­ches­tra. Equally, hav­ing pi­anist Ron­ald Brautigam com­pli­ment my shap­ing of the or­ches­tral part in Mozart’s Pi­ano Con­certo No. 21.

Mu­si­cal hero: I am amazed by the tech­nique of con­duc­tor Car­los Kleiber – free, but al­ways ex­tremely pre­cise. He re­ally strug­gled with stage fright, but kept go­ing re­gard­less.

Dream con­cert: I don’t dream about con­certs – I dream about col­lab­o­ra­tions and the long-term im­pact of my work. I hope that by be­ing eth­i­cal and de­voted, I can pos­i­tively in­flu­ence those around me.

Josep-ra­mon Olivé Bari­tone

Born: Barcelona, Spain Ca­reer high­light: Win­ning the Han­del Singing Com­pe­ti­tion helped me ex­pand my ca­reer in Baroque mu­sic, and Guild­hall’s Gold Medal was a great recog­ni­tion of my academic jour­ney.

Mu­si­cal hero: Bryn Ter­fel en­cour­aged me to be­come a bet­ter bari­tone – his tone is so unique and re­fined, and I es­pe­cially love the way he sings Mozart.

Dream con­cert: I per­formed in a re­mark­able con­cert at LSO St Luke’s as part of the Bar­bi­can ECHO Ris­ing Stars tour. The au­di­ence was ex­tremely at­ten­tive through­out the whole pro­gramme.
