Artur Pizarro

Artur Pizarro

After winning the Leeds Piano Competition in 1990, Artur Pizarro has released several oustandingly beautiful solo albums on Linn Records. Artur is renowned for his 'breath-takingly sensitive playing' (Glasgow Herald).

Ludwig van Beethoven

Considered to have been the most crucial figure in the transitional period between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western classical music, Beethoven remains one of the most famous and influential composers of all time.

'Pizarro must be one of the best pianists of the younger generation.' The Herald

'An expectional album of Beethoven from a rising young pianist – one to watch.' Gramophone


Since winning the Leeds International Piano Competition in 1990 Artur Pizarro pursues a truly international career. Renowned for his lyrical poeticism and outstanding virtuosity, this is Pizarro's debut recording for Linn.

Pizarro's choice of instrument for the recording has been informed by intensive aural research into a large number of Beethoven piano cycles available. Though in many ways out of fashion, his choice of a Blüthner concert grand piano, model 1 allows him to create his own soundscape: 'I selected a Blüthner because it's more nimble than a normal twentieth-century grand, more transparent in texture. I wanted something ridiculously expressive.'
