Described as the ‘’the most unique pianist of her generation’’ by Le Monde, Vanessa Wagner’s career mirrors her image : original and committed, mixing classical recitals, contemporary creations, and chamber music with video, electrical music and dance.
She has been rewarded many times. Since her ‘Victoire de la Musique’ in 1999, she has been performing all around the world, in solo or with an orchestra. She was named Director of Chambord Festival in 2010.
On April 26th, she will release Inland, marking Infiné’s 50th album release. The pianist’s continuation of the exploration of the minimalist composers register to complete the solo continuum of the Statea released in 2016 with the Mexican producer Murcof.
Inland highlights a set of pieces, mostly rare or unavailable to date (Moondog, Nico Muhly, William Susman, Bryce Dessner, Gavin Bryars…) and some other well known (Philip Glass, Wim Mertens, MichaelNyman) that Vanessa Wagner performs with her classic pianist background and velvet sound.
The first extract of this journey is a 1977-piece by the legendary American composer, the celestial tramp aka Moondog.
