Album information

The debut album “Poetic Sonatas” by pianist Olga Jegunova exhibits not only the creative capabilities and experience of the artist, but also an attempt to merge the two culture fields of music and poetry. The poetry by three different authors accompanying the CD, is linked with the music of Beethoven, Chopin and Bartók inviting the listeners to gain an insight into Olga’s thinking as well as experience the contrasts between them. The choice of repertoire is not without purpose either – alongside Beethoven’s Sonata no.21 in C major and Chopin’s Sonata no.2 in B flat minor we find a less often recorded Bartók Sonata (1926). This gives us three different takes on the nature and genre of the sonata, ranging from the Vienna classical school of music to the first decades of the 20th century. Here we find the defining moment of Olga Jegunova’s take on interplay between music and poetry: Beethoven and Goethe, Chopin and Pasternak, Bartok and Parry.
