Fanny Azzuro

 

At the whim of colour...

Born into a family of musicians from Italy, and a prizewinner in international competitions, Fanny Azzuro imagines sounds bursting with colour, in the memory of landscapes illuminated by warm lights. The sun of Romanticism and the works of the first half of the 20th century shine through her performances today.

The world of sound that emerges from the fingers of this Yamaha artist is nourished by encounters. First of all, the master with whom Fanny Azzuro studied for many years, pianist Boris Petrushansky. Then there are the far-flung journeys, stirring up emotions from Djibouti to Brazil, via Asia and New York's Carnegie Hall. Since then, she has been transcribing her travel diaries to the stage, sometimes in the dazzling hues of Ravel, sometimes in the hushed tones of Debussy and Albéniz, three great 'travellers' brought together on the 1905 Impressions CD. Equally fascinated by the Slavic repertoire, she has explored its spells in several albums: Russian Impulse, then the exploration of endless territories, those of Rachmaninov's Preludes in the disc entitled Landscapes of the Soul. Other preludes by Chopin and Scriabin meet in her latest recording, Golden Dreams.

Fanny Azzuro is a narrator, inviting the listener on a journey with multiple resonances. She leads them alone or in the company of other artists and major chamber music ensembles. In this way, she rubs shoulders with today's most remarkable soloists, quartets, string and wind instrumentalists, percussionists... She enriches the vast universe of classical music with joyful stops between jazz and the tango, which fascinated her as a member of the SpiriTango Quartet.

There is nothing scattered about Fanny Azzuro's repertoire. Rather, it expresses a desire to delve deeper into the beauties of a particular musical era. Correspondences between works emerge naturally over time. The Naïve label now accompanies her on this promising journey.
