Camiel Boomsma (Piano).
This new release is a committing recital by young Dutch pianist, Camiel Boomsma, already praised by BBC Music Magazine for his previous release: “Camiel Boomsma plays beautifully”. Chopin’s Nocturnes and Schubert last Sonata emphasize Boomsma’s natural talent for a singing phrasing. Camiel Boomsma writes: “Musings signifies dreams, reveries, being immersed in thought. It’s the process that the composer experiences while writing the work and also what I experience when studying and performing this music. As I play, I try in turn to pass on this process, this quest for insight, to my audience. Despite the major differences in musical background, these two composers are remarkably close in spirit. The most important aspect here is their ability to create beautiful balanced melodies on the piano. They make the instrument sing more than anyone else.”
