“I try to mix past with present”, says Yugoslav-born pianist Tamara Stefanovich, dubbed the “dexterous wizard” of the keyboard. Her recitals are built on extremes: the purity of Bach next to the flamboyance of Liszt; the deep-ingrained emotional depth of Rachmaninov next to the mercurial fantasy of Ligeti. Her fierce engagement with the music makes performances eagerly anticipated events amongst her followers. Her Cardiff recital combines the transcendent virtuosity of Rachmaninov with Ligeti’s Études – perhaps the most important piano music of the last thirty years.
