Michèle Gurdal brings a sensuous and soulful album

09-05-2014 Michèle Gurdal brings a sensuous and soulful album

According to pianist Michèle Gurdal, many etudes of Alexander Scriabin’s are permeated with his striving towards a state of ecstasy. It is not surprising that the name of her new album is ‘Extase’!

When Michèle Gurdal was still a kid she discovered Scriabin’s piano music. She was ten years old and could not stop listening to the deeply melancholic Etude Opus 2 no. 1. She felt this music drew to her like magic. This album had to be made so she could ‘move her spiritual energies’, as Scriabin himself would used to say. 

Michèle Gurdal
Michèle Gurdal was only nine years of age when she played the solo in Joseph Haydn’s Piano Concerto in G Major with the Belgian Chamber Orchestra live on Belgian television. By the age of seventeen she had already completed her studies at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles in piano, chamber music and music history with the Diplom de Premier Prix. She studied in the master class of Homero Francesch in Zurich and in conclusion with Professor Anatol Ugorski at the University of Music in Detmold.
