Concert pianist Fiammetta Tarli throws new light on the most famous piano concerto by Mozart through the new cadenzas composed by her friend Martin Georgiev. Here we dream of Mozart from the faraway perspective of our time. She carries on exploring Georgiev’s sound world and ends her performance with one of twentieth century’s piano landmarks by another sound explorer: Maurice Ravel. And here one can draw interesting parallels between Mozart’s keyboard piano transparency, Georgiev’s mystic evocations, and Ravel’s water landscapes.

Together with Ivo Varbanov she founded a new audiophile record label: Independent Creative Sound and Music (ICSM) Records. Her concerts have been broadcast by RAI and Rete Toscana Classica (Italy), Slovak, Bulgarian and Spanish National Radios. Fiammetta’s recordings (two of them with Gega New, Bulgaria, three with ICSM Records, and three more along the way) have received wide acclaim by the international press (International Record Review, Rivista Musica, Fanfare, Observer, Klassisk Musikkmagasin, HI-FI+). Her next projects include the publications of Mozart’s two-piano concertos (K 365 and K 242) recently recorded with the English Chamber Orchestra, Bruch Concerto for two pianos with the Gdansk Philarmonic, and more.
