Florian Noack, recital
The Namur Music Festival is proud to present Florian Noack, a beautiful musician according to our heart. He offers us here an original program sticking to the theme of this edition composed of small contrasting parts. Definitely a nice Baltic piano journey by a curious and singular artist.
At the age of 27, the Belgian pianist Florian Noack imposed himself with a form of discretion unusual for young artists in search of notoriety. He is a slender, modest-looking young man who goes to the piano as if he were at home for a work session.
The pianist develops a clear, rather light sound, using a particular delicacy in the medium. There is a great homogeneity in the line of this piano that goes straight. He gives us the music with a proud honesty, freed from courtesies of circumstance. It must be said that the pianist has, for a long time, been singled out by his insatiable discoverer appetite, more curious about rarities than about the great repertoire he says he has paced back and forth. Thus Florian Noack said in an interview: "At 14, I played more Clementi than Beethoven, Medtner Rachmaninov, and I was studying Alkan while I had never played one piece of Liszt. What he calls, in his own words, "a kind of blessed adolescent crisis! "_ The world
