Italian pianist Beatrice Rana has been charming listeners worldwide with electrifying performances that marry exhilarating power and precision with a startling sensitivity to the poetry underlying a musical score. Rana’s solo recital debut at Carnegie Hall last season left audiences rapt, and the New York Times‘ chief classical music critic wrote that her rendition of Chopin’s Op. 25 études “set a new standard for me,” adding “she made the pieces sound as poetic and colorful as anything Chopin ever wrote.” Here, her program includes the composer’s four diabolical and lyrical scherzos, which completely upended the genre; two contrasting waltzes by Ravel and Scriabin; and Scriabin’s volatile late-period “Insect Sonata.”
