Marcia Hadjimarkos – piano
An autumn bouquet of works by two brilliant yet little-known French female composers, Hélène de Montgeroult and the mysterious Mme de Villeblanche. Sonatas, études, variations, and a fantasy will be performed on fortepiano by Marcia Hadjimarkos.
Marcia Hadjimarkos, whose playing has been described as “imaginatively realized, full-blooded and loving”, “brilliantly intelligent”, and “dynamic, free, and powerfully shaped”, fell in love with keyboard instruments at the age of four when she received her first record, a 45 of “The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy “ and heard the magical sound of the celesta.
Her 8-recital performance of the complete Haydn sonatas on a variety of early keyboards met with critical success, as have her recordings, which include Mozart Sonatas and Rondos on fortepiano (Avie), CPE Bach on fortepiano and clavichord (Zig-Zag), Haydn on clavichord (Zig-Zag), Haydn Songs and Cantatas with Emma Kirkby (Brilliant Classics) and Schubert Dances and Sonata on fortepiano (Arabesque Recordings). These have earned a Diapason d’Or, five-star reviews in Goldberg, Musica, and Fonoforum, and enthusiastic articles in Fanfare, Télérama, Gramophone and Le Monde de la Musique. She also accompanied Hugo Reyne (csakan) on the CD “Viennoiseries Musicales “(Musiques à la Chabotterie).
