Admitted to the Mozarteum of Salzburg at the age of 10 before joining the new section reserved for the most exceptional child prodigies, the young German-Italian pianist Sophie Pacini (today 27 years old) is one of the rising stars of piano today. At the heart of this recital lies one of the most attaching and personal works by Schumann, the Carnaval op. 9. Composed for the Mardi-Gras of 1835, these 20 vignettes, whose tenderness blends with the picturesque, could be seen as a condensation of the musician’s life and work. Around a musical framework typical of Schumann, based on the name of the city of origin of his fiancée at the time, gravitates a brilliant procession of characters from the Commedia del’Arte, admired musicians (Chopin and Paganini), alter egos of the composer (Eusebius and Florestan), loves of today and tomorrow (Ernestine/Estrella and Clara/Chiarina) and a whole troupe of David’s companions waging war against the Philistines of culture.
