FERIEL KADDOUR pursues a double career as a pianist and as a musicologist. Her desire to break the boundaries between her different passions stems from her years of training which she has lead, simultaneously, at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris and at the Ecole Normale de Musique A. Cortot. She devotes her time to her concerts, writing and teaching, and it is in between these activities that she explores her favorite repertoires. Trained by great French pianists (she has perfected her art with Anne Queffélec and Pascal Devoyon), she is invited by numerous festivals: Piano en Saintonge – Abbaye de Saintes, Festival des Grands Crus de Bourgogne, Musique a Albas, Musiciennes a Ouessant, Musiciennes en Guadeloupe, Festival Cantus Formus. In Paris, one may have heard her playing in the Salle Cortot, the Salle Adyar, the Théâtre du Ranelagh, at Radio France and at the Musée de l'Orangerie. She has performed in Italy (Ibla, Verona, San Marino, Naples), in Germany (Mainz), and in England (London, Cambridge). She holds the Agrégation and a PhD in musicology. She teaches at the Département Histoire et Théorie des Arts at the Ecole Normale Supérieure and she is currently preparing an essay on the The Gesture of the pianist. When Lydia Jardon offered her to record for the Label Ar-résé, and recommended the Russian repertoire that fallen into oblivion, she seeks out the works which struck a chord with her favorite Russian writers: Chalamov, Grossman, Mandelstam, Tsvetaieva, Pasternak. The composer Anatoly Alexandrov stood out immediately. His music is both allusive and lyrical, dark and lively as a winter landscape, sometimes grotesque and cutting as one of Gogol’s pages. ANATOLY ALEXANDROV (1888-1982) is a composer to be rediscovered. He has forged a very particular style, somewhere between Scriabin, Medtner, Rachmaninov and at times Debussy. His language firmly fits into the Russia of the first half of the 20th century, both on a harmonic and a pianistic level. The recording reveals its contrasting aspects: intimist and personal pages meet popular melodies, some of which are typically Russian, while other evoke a more impressionist feel. Fériel Kaddour devoted this recording to the short forms of the composer, Visions, Preludes, Passages… They summon sensations and colors, and their depth of field explores the nooks and jarring subtleties of the harmony. The language, led with never-ending tension, imposes both the steady flow of the long phrasing and the very precise characterization of details. Every page breathes with a particular breeze. And as the pages are turned, a journey unfolds. The destination of this wandering blurs as we advance, but with every lucid step we are urged to cling to life.
