Singing, on the piano or with the voice, is an activity of self-knowledge. Embraced by music, the perspective of enlightenment opens up to us, the harmonies transforming emotions taking us into a resonating universe beyond words. The pianist is constantly searching for the vocal, and the singer takes instrumental expressive resources to communicate sonic stories. In the musical discourse, Chopin's poetics is either hidden in the texture of the piano or affirmed by the singer's voice, but always present and embraced by the audience. The recital sonically illustrates the seraphic, lyrical and dramatic valences of vocality, beyond musical currents and styles. (Roman Manoleanu)
