Playing with infinity. Ljuba Moiz piano. Dynamic CDT 5027
Ljuba Moiz is an extremely
talented young pianist and she is intensely dedicated to the performance
of 20th century music that she cultivates on the highest level. She has
a wide repertory and deserves full attention and recognition for
her outstanding achievements. I listened to an excellent CD: I found the
mood and atmosphere very inspired and convincing. So were the
Debussy and Bartok Pieces. I can recommend Ljuba Moiz with no
reservation whatsoever and with the hope that she can prove herself
"I enjoyed so much listening to
her CD: I found it really beautifully played"
"...she performed the works of Ton de Leeuw and Ton Bruynel recorded in this CD at the “Festival Nederlandse Pianomuziek” in a way that would be certainly appreciated by the composers with whom I have been working a lot. "

Ljuba Moiz is a young pianist who studied at the Conservatorium “Paganini” in Genoa and here dedicates this recording to the music of XXth century. It deals with pieces even very complex, just as those by Leos Janŕcek, in his peculiarly aphoristic style, as well as some famous pieces by Debussy, from among we recommend “Cloches ŕ travers les feuilles” and “Poisson d’or” for her great interpretative sensibility. But it is worth of a particular mention the interpretation of the pieces by two dutch composers, Ton de Leeuw and Ton Bruynel: especially the latter, with the combination of piano and soundtracks, which represents one of the most original and high moments of the performance of this remarkable pianist.
