Description

Norway's fast-rising star pianist, Christian Ihle Hadland - now a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist - makes his debut concerto recording with a disc of two Mozart Piano Concertos, Nos. 21 and 22, performed with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Arvid Engegard. Among the many striking features of this much-anticipated release is Hadland's choice of cadenzas that Benjamin Britten wrote for Sviatoslav Richter in 1966 for the E-flat concerto, K482.

Christian Ihle Hadland is widely recognised as one of Norway's most exciting young piano talents. He made his debut with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and conductor Eivind Aadland at the age of 15, and has since gone on to perform with all of Norway's leading orchestras, including several appearances with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2006 he was invited to accompany Renée Fleming at the annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo which was televised to a global audience of many millions. In 2010 Christian was appointed joint Artistic Director of the Stavanger Chamber Music Festival alongside clarinettist Martin Fröst and he will be opening the 2011-12 season at the Oslo Philharmonic performing Chopin with conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste. His debut solo album in April 2010 for Simax Classics of works by Chopin and Schumann attracted great interest and received excellent reviews.

Personnel: Christian Ihle Hadland (piano), Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Arvid Engegard (conductor)
