Award-winning French pianist Vanessa Wagner has been described as “the most delightfully singular pianist of her generation” and “ the most singular, curious and captivating pianist in the landscape.” Experience her music live in this special intimate performance in the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, including pieces from from her three solo albums for record label InFiné which explore the minimalist repertoire – the critically-acclaimed Study of the Invisible, plus Inland and forthcoming album Mirrored.
Vanessa Wagner collects solo piano studies of graceful minimalism and rare finesse. Across her three solo albums she has introduced her audience to pieces, many rare or unpublished, by acclaimed composers, young pianists, and genre-bending personalities from the ambient and electronic scenes. A contemporary and timeless repertoire that can be described as “minimalist”, but which in reality covers a multitude of singular universes and often extraordinary musical personalities.
Her most recent album Study of the Invisible features interpretations of pieces by a spectrum of composers that includes Suzanne Ciani, Caroline Shaw, Brian Eno, Philip Glass, Harold Budd, David Lang, Bryce Dessner, Ezio Bosso, Moondog, Nico Muhly and Julia Wolfe.
