November 28, 2023

Congratulations to Kristoffer Hyldig. The Prize is the presitigous Danish Broadcast P2 AWARD

The motivation from the Jury writes:
Kristoffer Hyldig: Messiaen: 'Twenty Contemplations on the Infant Jesus' One can't help but bow down in admiration for the Danish pianist Kristoffer Hyldig's recording of Olivier Messiaen's piano masterpiece 'Twenty Contemplations on the Infant Jesus' ('Vingt Regards Sur L'Enfant-Jésus'). 'Vingt Regards' is a monumental work that, across 20 movements and two hours, reflects on the infant Jesus. It is sensual and mystical music, filled with peculiar timbres and distinctive rhythms. It is music that demands the utmost from the pianist – in terms of technique, musicality, and physicality. Kristoffer Hyldig interprets the work with tremendous skill. Every note is carefully considered, yet it sounds spontaneous and fluid. This is an album of international caliber.
