About the album

Veronika Böhmová immediately enchants you with her sheer vivacity – both when you meet her face to
face and when seeing her playing the piano. In addition to her teachers (Ivan Klánský, Arkadi Zenzipér),
she has also gained experience with a number of other remarkable pianists (Berman, Béroff, Hellwig,
etc.). The conductors with whom she has performed include Jiří Bělohlávek, Jakub Hrůša and Paul
Goodwin. Her most significant successes are second prizes at the Maria Canals Competition in Barcelona
and the Anton G. Rubinstein Wettbewerb in Dresden and progressing to the semi-final of the Queen
Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. Following her debut at the Prague Spring and on numerous renowned
stages throughout Europe, Veronika Böhmová has now made her eagerly anticipated debut recording.
Like the pianist herself, the selected repertoire is unusual: besides Prokofiev’s weighty “war” Sonata No. 8
and Stravinsky’s fiendishly difficult piano version of Le chant du rossignol, the CD features the two
Russian composers’ rarely played yet brilliant etudes. The album is an exquisite delicacy served on a silver
tray to real gourmets and connoisseurs.
