BEATRICE BERRUT – The Swiss pianist Beatrice Berrut has made a name for herself as a Liszt specialist, among other things. “Le Monde” writes: “Her recording is a condensation of Liszt’s galaxy and the pianist an incarnation of the main characters of Olympus: of the huntress Diana, who with her Bösendorfer bow had no expressive goals missed, to the elusive Mercury rising from her virtuosic fingers.” In her discography, she honors the work of two great mystics: that of Bach (in her album Lux Aeterna, which, with the music of Thierry Escaich, reflects Bach’s modernity) and that of Liszt, to whom she has dedicated three albums, in which they alternate maturing plant, examined his concertante work and his late work. Her latest CD from 2022 presents her own paraphrases and arrangements of symphonic works by Mahler and Schönberg. In the coming seasons she will make her debuts with the Niedersächsisches Staatsorchester in the Staatstheater Hannover, with the Orchester Philharmonique de Liège and she will be heard for the second time in the Wigmore Hall. Beatrice Berrut regularly performs as a soloist with orchestras such as the Dortmund Philharmonic, the English Chamber Orchestra, the North Czech Philharmonic and Kraków Philharmonic. She has made guest appearances in halls such as the Berlin Philharmonie, the Berlin Konzerthaus, the Dortmund Concert Hall, the Tonhalle in Zurich, and worldwide in China, the USA and Argentina, and at festivals such as La Roque d’Anthéron (F), Festival de Radio France Montpellier or piano Days in Brussels. She completed her studies at the Academy of Music Hanns Eisler in Berlin in the class of Galina Ivanzowa, a student of Heinrich Neuhaus.
