TANSMAN: Piano Works

Giorgio Koukl, piano

"It has been a pleasure to dig into the apparently bottomless treasure of never-played works of Alexander Tansman. A man of the world, yet bound with intimacy to his Polish origins, to his Parisian world and most of all to his Jewish roots, he was able to transform all these influences into something unique far better than any other composer. Unjustly neglected for far too long, his work is now on the rise and being rediscovered. I am happy to contribute to this rediscovery with the hope it will become a part of the piano repertoire." ~Giorgio Koukl

Giorgio Koukl is a pianist/harpsichordist and composer who resides in the beautiful town of Lugano, located in the italian-speaking canton of Ticino in southern Switzerland. He was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic) in 1953, and studied there at the State Music School and Conservatoire. In 1968 he moved to Switzerland and continued his studies at both the Conservatories of Zürich and Milan (Italy). During this time, he took part in the masterclasses of N. Magalov, J. Fèvrier, R. Firkusny and S. Neuhaus.
