Blessed with real fire and intelligence, and with a technique to match, French pianist Fanny Azzuro […] is clearly a name to watch. She […] plays this repertoire with a rare level of understanding […] Here, the sweetness of her tone invites in a delicious nostalgia, a nostalgia poignantly contradicted by Prokofiev’s exquisitely timed dissonances. The performance of this movement is a master class in sensitivity […] Azzuro adjusts chameleon-like to deliver a performance that can hardly fail to raise a smile. The programming of this disc cannot be faulted and this is a superb introduction to a pianist from whom we need to hear more.
