After her albums around Beethoven / Wölfl, Bach / Kapustin and Couperin / Messiaen, pianist Luisa Imorde now dedicates herself to the romantic repertoire with orchestra. Weber's departure from the classical to the romantic era and Schumann's legacy as a female composer are brought to mastery in Luisa Imorde's outstanding interpretation. Two great romantic piano concertos united on one album - Clara Schumann and Carl Maria von Weber.
Release: May 19th 2023
“Luisa Imorde couples a mature playing technique with an unbridled passion for the piece she is playing and the instrument she is playing it on, resulting in an auditory experience that kindles the spirit and sets the heart aflame” – said the Süddeutsche Zeitung of the young German pianist’s art.
She shares stage with artists like Martha Argerich, Fazil Say or Marie-Luise Neunecker and collaborates on a regular basis with german composer Jörg Widmann. She studied at the University of Music in Cologne and at the Mozarteum Salzburg with Jacques Rouvier.
11:15 AM – 1:00 PM Oldenburgisches Staatstheater. Theaterwall 28, Oldenburg.

"POLYCHROMIE"On her new album "Polychromie", which will be released on 06 May 2022, the young German pianist Luisa Imorde lets two composers from France enter into dialogue - François Couperin and Olivier Messiaen.
Just as Le Corbusier knew how to bring contrasting colours into perfect harmony with his "Polychromie Architecturale", a similar effect is revealed here: the colours of sound are, as it were, complementary to each other - in a perfectly balanced polychromy.
Pianist Luisa Imorde loves innovative combinations: following on from circus dances by Schumann and Widmann and the affair of honour between Woelfl and Beethoven, she now prepares to cast light on Johann Sebastian Bach and Nikolai Kapustin.
1798: Two titans of music meet for a competition of a special kind. Luisa Imorde revives this musical trial of strength at the piano.
