About the album

Ivo Janssen, born in Venlo in 1963, graduated with distinction from the Sweelinck Conservatory, Amsterdam in 1987 where he studied with Jan Wijn. He also took lessons from Gyorgy Szebök and Andrzej Jasinski. In October 1986, he already won First Prize in the celebrated Benelux Tromp Competition, was a semi-finalist in the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels and a number of prestigious prizes such as the Jacques Vonk Prize (a scholarship for study abroad) and the Elisabeth Evers (an important distinction for young musicians). Insiders already predict a great international career for this highly talented musician.

Ravel en Chopin prachtig live uitgevoerd
Dit album is een live-opname van Ravels Le Tombeau de Couperin en Chopins 24 Préludes Op. 28, uitgevoerd door pianist Ivo Janssen voor een speciaal uitgenodigd klein publiek.

Le Toumbeau de Couperin is gecomponeerd door Maurice Ravel en is een ode aan een andere grote Franse componist, François Couperin. Het is tevens opgedragen aan de gesneuvelde soldaten tijdens de Eerste Wereldoorlog. Het was oorspronkelijk een suite maar werd later ook voor orkest geschreven als begeleiding bij balletvoorstellingen.

De 24 Préludes opus 28 zijn 24 werken voor solo piano geschreven door Chopin, die hij opdroeg aan een vriend. Preludes zijn eigenlijk inleidende stukken maar hier zijn het volwaardige werken die samen een complete cyclus vormen.

Ivo Janssen, geboren in Venlo in 1963, studeerde af met een onderscheiding van het Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam in 1987 waar hij studeerde bij Jan Wijn. Hij won diverse prijzen zowel in binnen als buitenland en wordt alom gewaardeerd. Met dit album bewijst hij weer waarom; een prachtige live-uitvoering van bekende werken van de grote componisten Ravel en Chopin.

Ivo Janssen

Since his debut in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam in 1988 pianist Ivo Janssen (Venlo, 1963) performs regularly in the Netherlands, and also in Germany, France, Italy, Australia and the USA. He has performed with musicians such as Heinrich Schiff, Nobuko Imai, Han de Vries and Charlotte Margiono. For Globe, Ivo Janssen made a number of recordings including Brahms, Prokofiev, Chopin Preludes op. 28 and Hindemith’s Ludus Tonalis, which the Hindemith Institute considered to be the best recording by far of this work. In 1994 he started a series of concerts which will eventually include performances and recordings of the complete keyboard works by J.S. Bach.

In 1994 he started a series of concerts which will eventually include performances and recordings of the complete keyboard works by J.S. Bach. In February 1998 the first album in this series was released, on his own label VOID Classics, which was especially started for this purpose. After recordings of the Goldberg Variations, Toccatas, French and English Suites, Partitas, the Well-tempered Clavier, and much more, the cycle was completed with a recording of The Art of Fugue in January 2007. His toccata! project, that combines Bach’s toccatas with toccatas especially written by a number of contemporary Dutch composers such as Louis Andriessen, Michiel Borstlap, Leo Samama and Christina Viola Oorebeek was received with much enthusiasm, in the Netherlands as well as abroad.
Since 2014 Ivo Janssen plays recitals in Janssenbeton, music below decks, a concert hall built by himself in a concrete ammunition barge in the centre of Amsterdam. However, he has decided to stop performing for the time being in the summer of 2019.

Composer(s)

Maurice Ravel

Joseph Maurice Ravel was a French composer who is often associated with impressionism along with his elder contemporary Claude Debussy, although both composers rejected the term. In the 1920s and 1930s Ravel was internationally regarded as France's greatest living composer. Born to a music-loving family, Ravel attended France's premier music college, the Paris Conservatoire; he was not well regarded by its conservative establishment, whose biased treatment of him caused a scandal. After leaving the Conservatoire Ravel found his own way as a composer, developing a style of great clarity, incorporating elements of baroque, neoclassicism and, in his later works, jazz. He liked to experiment with musical form, as in his best-known work, Boléro (1928), in which repetition takes the place of...

After leaving the Conservatoire Ravel found his own way as a composer, developing a style of great clarity, incorporating elements of baroque, neoclassicism and, in his later works, jazz. He liked to experiment with musical form, as in his best-known work, Boléro (1928), in which repetition takes the place of development. He made some orchestral arrangements of other composers' music, of which his 1922 version of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition is the best known.
As a slow and painstaking worker, Ravel composed fewer pieces than many of his contemporaries. Among his works to enter the repertoire are pieces for piano, chamber music, two piano concertos, ballet music, two operas, and eight song cycles; he wrote no symphonies and only one religious work. Many of his works exist in two versions: a first, piano score and a later orchestration. Some of his piano music, such as Gaspard de la nuit (1908), is exceptionally difficult to play, and his complex orchestral works such as Daphnis et Chloé (1912) require skilful balance in performance.

Frédéric Chopin

Frédéric Chopin is one of the greatest composers of the Romantic piano tradition. He was a master in making the small form great. His ballades, mazurkas, polonaises, preludes, etudes and nocturnes all belong to the most popular standard works for piano ever written.  As a child prodigy, Chopin grew up in a middle class family, who lived among the literati of Warsaw. When in 1830 the November Uprising broke out in Poland, the twenty year old Chopin stayed in Vienna. He became an exile and never returned to his mother country. He eventually settled in Paris.  He avoided public concerts, but he did like performing in small settings, such as salons and at home for his friends. This way, Chopin built a...

He avoided public concerts, but he did like performing in small settings, such as salons and at home for his friends. This way, Chopin built a reputation as an exceptional pianist, teacher and composer.
Chopin brought a unique synthesis between the Viennese bravado and the French/English lyric style. Even though his pieces often are technically very demanding, the focus was always on creating a lyric expression and poetic atmosphere. He invented the instrumental ballade, and brought salongenres to a higher level with his many innovations and refinements.
