GIORGIO KOUKL

Giorgio Koukl is a pianist/harpsichordist and composer who lives in Lugano, in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino in southern Switzerland. He was born in Prague in 1953, and studied there at the State Music School and Conservatory. In 1968 he moved to Switzerland and continued his studies at both the conservatories of Zürich and Milan. While studying there he took part in the masterclasses of Nikita Magalov, Jacques Février, and Stanislaus Neuhaus, and with Rudolf Firkušný, friend and advocate of Czech composer Bohuslav Martinů. It was through Firkušný that Koukl first encountered Martinů’s music, prompting him to search out his compatriot’s solo piano works. Since then he has developed these into an important part of his concert repertoire and is now considered one of the world’s leading interpreters of Martinů’s piano music, having recorded that composer’s complete solo piano music and piano concertos, as well as two discs of his vocal music, for Naxos. As a logical continuation of this work, and with a nod to his own maternal Russian ancestry, Koukl has recorded for Grand Piano the complete solo piano works of Alexander Tcherepnin, a Russian composer who belonged to the same Parisian group of composers as Martinů, along with Arthur Honegger, Harsányi, Beck and Mihalovici, a group which Albert Roussel referred to as “Les Constructeurs.”
