'A fascinating compilation... Riu's playing is entrancing.' Classic CD

Elena Riu, with her mixture of radicalism and unworldliness is the perfect interpreter of John Tavener.' The Independent

All the works are spellbinding in Riu's readings.' American Record Guide

‘...a remarkably enterprising and imaginative young pianist...the Mompou receives a superb performance, relishing every delicate change of colour and texture...' International Piano

Piano Icons For The 21st Century was widely acclaimed upon its release and named a Gramophone ‘Critics' Choice': 'my disc of 2000 is without hesitation Elena Riu's extraordinarily fine CD.' John Tavener was inspired to write his first major solo work for piano in over twenty years after hearing Elena play. She premiered Ypakoë, a series of meditations on the death of Jesus, at the City of London Festival. The programme also includes Janacek's In The Mist, an intensely personal and darkly hued cycle, plus an intriguing collection of miniatures by three composers who, in her view, are on a similar wavelength: Peter Sculthorpe, the late Catalan composer Federico Mompou, and Arvo Pärt.
