“I think that these five pieces are closely interconnected through a subtle, almost existential dramatic thread; a strong, clear element which completely touches my emotional world. It was for this reason that I knew I had to choose them for my first CD.” 

Serena

The album "SoloPiano", produced by the German record label AurisAurea, represents an important milestone for the artistic career of Serena Chillemi. With music by Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy and Franck, Serena presents a challenging and intense program finding its roots in European Romantic repertoire, and allowing the pianist to exploit the full potential of the musical instrument both from a tonal and from a technical point of view.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 This is the debut album, published by the prestigious label "AURIS AUREA", whose catalogue is characterized by the peculiarities of the production choices. In fact, this record label usually pays special attention to those recordings where you can clearly feel and understand the intimate and special relationship between "composition" and "interpreter" and to those musical performances carried out in special circumstances and able to capture the listener for their unusual authenticity. This work thus becomes a musical journey and offers the opportunity to discover a new and unique way to listen.
